Abstract:

Flying plate generators FPG are used to study the shock properties of various materials. This report investigates the theoretical electrical properties of the flat, parallel conductors that are currently used in the construction of FPGs. The design of these conductors can greatly effect the efficiency of FPGs by varying the high frequency capacitance and inductance of the electrical circuit, and the induced current in the surrounding system. The report derives rules governing the geometry of the conductors to minimise the inductance and capacitance of high frequency for such circuits. Australia.
