Abstract
An exploding wire method is described in which the impact properties of hollow polymeric cylinders are investigated by subjecting them to internal, high-pressure, blast wave loading. Studies of the blast waves themselves, and of the expansion of thin-walled polymer tubes and rings, have been made using high-speed image convertor photography at 10 exp 5 to 10 exp 6 frames/s. Such observations, when combined with strain gauge and pressure measurements where necesary, have enabled the mechanical properties of several polymers to be determined at high strain rates from 10 exp 3 to 10 exp 5/s.
