Microstructure of -epoxy composite showing (a) spherical aluminum particles and irregular particles and (b) particles are comprised of small elliptical particles.
Schematic of Indian Head gas gun experiments.
(a) Expanded view of target assembly for embedded gauge plate impact experiments and (b) schematic of the experimental target arrangement with respect to the magnetic field and projectile/impactor at the LANL Chamber 9 facility.
(a) Optical micrograph of embedded gauge package. The package consists of thick Al patterned and sandwiched between layers of FEP-Teflon membrane. (b) The gauge membrane glued to the target bottom. (c) The fully assembled target showing the single element stirrup gauge on the target impact face.
Schematic of explosive loading experiments showing (a) first revision measuring shock velocity in sample and metal donor (JJH15–16) and (b) second revision measuring shock velocity in two samples (JJH54–65).
(a) Experiment JJH28 PVDF gauge traces and (b) experiment JJH121 PVDF and manganin input gauge traces.
Corrected response of nine particle trackers and one, of the three, shock velocity trackers for experiment 2S-333. The Hugoniot point was determined from the particle velocity of the impact face gauge and shock velocity from the shock arrival at the nine particle velocity and three shock velocity trackers at their respective Lagrangian positions in the sample.
(a) Shock velocity-particle velocity, (b) pressure vs particle velocity, and (c) pressure vs volume data from -epoxy composite from the three types of experiments. The linear Rankine–Hugoniot fit to the intermediate-to-high pressure data overestimates the data at low pressures and the bulk sound speed. A more satisfactory fitting form is the quadratic equation .
