The report gives the results of the experiments on aluminum liner acceleration and their interaction with electrode walls. The liners having the radius of 30 mm, wall thickness of 1mm and 0.7 mm and a length of 30 mm are accelerated by a magnetic field, created by explosive magnetic generator EMC. A helical generator 100 mm in diameter and 700 mm in length was used to create a magnetic field. During the process of compression a liner shape was recorded using X-ray facility. The report gives experimental set-up, electrical and design data of experimental units and diagnostic equipment data, also raw experimental data, analysis data and description of an analysis method. Based on the experiments we chose the method to bring a liner into a contact with electrode walls, which permits continuous contact of a liner with electrode wall is in the process of motion.
