Determination of Dynamic Mechanical Properties from Explosively Driven Rings
The expanding ring test is employed as a method of screening metals for shaped charge liners. The dynamic elongation of the liner metal at high strain rate (∿104 sec−1) is found from the maximum elongation prior to rupture as determined from the voltage induced in a pickup coil by an expanding ring which is explosively driven in a magnetic field. The ring radii at various times as well as the mode of rapture are found from flash x-ray radiographs. The dynamics of the ring is analyzed by a two dimensional Hydro-Plasto-Dynamic code. The pickup coil signal is calculated from an analytical solution of an air core transformer, the primary of which is the ring with time dependent radius.
