CAPACITOR DISCHARGE THERMAL INITIATION APPARATUS FOR HIGH ENERGY MATERIALS
NAVAL ORDNANCE LAB WHITE OAK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
A thermal initiation apparatus is fully described for rapidly heating and monitoring high energy materials in the range of 300 to 1000C. Time delays to explosion, which range from 0.05 to 5 msec are a function of sample temperature. A capacitor discharge pulse heats a sample enclosed in a hypodermic needle tubing. Calibration methods, sample handling techniques, and representative data are also reported.
