Abstract:

At TNOPML a socalled Mega Ampere Pulser was built to accelerate thin plastic flyers which are subsequently impacted on different target materials. To reach a better understanding of the shape and time development of the shock pulses generated in the target material, a computer simulation of this situation was carried out, using the hydrocode Autodyn. In this report a description is given of set-up and results of the simulation as well as a evaluation of the results and an analysis of the consequences for the experiments....
