Abstract:

This is the second in a series of reports on our research on Propellant-Plasma Interactions. The first report described our facilities for testing propellants at high pressures. This report covers the design, fabrication and testing of equipment for producing and measuring controlled electric induced plasma discharges in the vicinity of explosive compositions. The next report will include Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy ESEM micrographs of explosive surfaces that have been subjected to discharges.
