Paper Abstract

Although modern numerical computational techniques are able to predict the geometry of a complex detonation front in condensed explosives, in most instances, experimental measurements are still required to verify computational results. We have measured non-planar detonation fronts by means of flash radiography as well as multi-slit ultra-high speed streak photography. In this paper, we shall discuss the two techniques and show measurement results from the two techniques.
