Lower-Upper Bounds of Temperatures for Wires Exploded in a Vacuum
Preliminary results of attempts to establish lower-upper bounds on exploding wire temperatures have been completed. The numerical code used allows for hydrodynamic motion, radiation, ionization, and a time-dependent energy dump. Maximum blackbody temperatures for wires exploded in vacuum were found to be limited by the hydrodynamics, radiation, and ionization. The results will be discussed.
