Detonation Fronts in a Solid Explosive

  • J. Roucou
Conference paper

Abstract

We report on the electrodynamic behavior of the detonation front in a solid explosive — heterogeneous PBX (gas cavities) dielectric ab initio — in a stationary state of the detonation wave, when we suppose a thin sheet plasma formation in the front.

Key words

Detonation front Plasma relaxation Self-consistent magnetic field
