Paper Abstract

Definitive conclusions about high and low order reactions can be drawn from individual framing-mode pictures of a rotating mirror camera record, when both the velocity of the axial propagation of the reaction along the outer contour and the velocity of radial products are analyzed at various distances from the plane of initiation. In this, the intensity of the reaction can be assessed quantitatively from the radial expansion velocities, even when, for example, a penetrating shaped charge jet induces a bow wave in the test charge. A detailed description is given of the test set-up and of the test results obtained with charges exposed to the impact of a shaped charge j et.
