Abstract
VISAR instrumentation has been used to examine how compressive waves grow towards detonation in granular explosives. In the experiments, a variety of initial waveforms have been generated in explosive samples using planar impact techniques and carefully designed projectile and target assemblies. Despite limitations due to window interfaces, VISAR measurements have provided important insights into initiation processes, and have contributed to a useful data base for the evaluation of predictive models.
