Paper Abstract

Exploding wires produce shock waves in thin layers of liquid between plane solid plates and induce compression phenomen. principally similar to those induced by spark discharges. Specific differences and typical phenomena of wire explosions can be detected using soft X-ray flashes. The interaction of several shock waves leads to compression and cavitation areas. The results can be varied using different arrangements of the exploding wire like circles and crosses. The density of energy in this shock wave source is lower than in our experiments with sparks and can be reduced to minimum values to study the influence of shock wave energies. The reHainder of the exploded wire gives information for energy calculations.
