Paper Abstract

For the design of barriers for detonation wave shapers in shaped charges, the shock wave attenuation characteristics of different materials or composite arrangements had to be tested. This paper will explain a test configuration for the diagnostic of the shock wave attenuation of homogeneous and sandwiched inert materials, which measures the delay time between the detonation of a doner and an acceptor charge. Applying the double-flash-gap technique, the analyzed pressure levels render possible conclusions about the existence of divergent or convergent detonation waves.
