Paper Abstract

With SST and with its variations in BiSST, OSST, or especially with BiOSST the characteristics of a shaped charge jet, such as tip velocity, length, particulation times and distances, diameters, transverse velocities, tumbling rates, and 3-D jet deviations, can be fully analyzed. All this can be done quantitatively with high accuracy. Observation of the jet surface under bright front illumination provides new insight into its structure under very high strain rates during extreme elongation.
