Abstract:

This report details initial experiments exploring the use of pulsed power driven dense plasma flows for hypersonics research. Such flows have regularly been produced for laboratory scale astrophysics studies, however, detailed characteristics of the flows and their interactions with different targets placed in the flow have rarely been studied for hydrodynamics purposes.
