Paper Abstract

With an appropriate test set up, the Hadland Photonics Ballistic Range Camera (SVR), designed primarily for exterior and terminal ballistics, can also be used very well for studying initiation events and analyzing a variety of detonation phenomena. This paper explains in detail the test set up of one interesting detonic experiment, observed with the Ballistic Range Camera, and the analysis of the results. The ability of the camera to superimpose up to 16 exposures on a single image allowed particularly detailed examination of the detonation propagation, the detonation velocities, the corner turning distance and the nonreacting radial zones.
