Pagination or Media Count:
The report covers experimental work performed on the processes of a wire undergoing electrical explosion. The object was to explore the effects of an externally-impressed magnetic field. The external field was applied in two different manners transversely arc blow-out fashion and axially magnetic pinch fashion. The particular process of interest is that phenomenon termed dark pause. The span of this pause is measured and compared for the same size wire sample for each field orientation. Author
