Paper Abstract

Through wire explosion in water and polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA), electric energy stored in a condenser is converted into mechanical energy. The condition of explosion maximizing the conversion efficiency, namely the appropriate dimension (the diameter and/or the length) of wire as well as the pertinent setup of a discharge circuit, has been determined experimentally.
