High Pressure Generation by Means of Pulsed Magnetic Fields
A system will be considered in which, due to a longitudinal current, a hollow cylindrical shell, i.e. a liner, is compressed and energy transmitted from a sequence, capacitor bank to an azimuthal magnetic field, producing liner kinetic energy and sample compression. In spite of the seeming complexity of the energy transmission, the system’s efficiency proved to be quite high and amounted up to 10 to 25% in the experiments performed.
