Abstract
A technique for observation of trajectories of transverse waves interacting with the detonation front in solid explosive has been developed. Emissions of visible light from a layer of argon contiguous to the explosives is stimulated by the wave interactions. Variations in the argon layer thickness permit tradeoff in resolution of fine structure and pattern intensity. A propane surround provides effective shuttering through production of carbon caused by reactions in the propane, triggered by the shock transmitted from the explosives. The shock interactions are recorded by an open shutter camera and a permanent photographic record of the triple point trajectories is obtained.
