Abstract
Flash-X-ray is mostly used in terminal Ballistic studies. The diagnostics of the reaction and detonation behavior of high explosives are the domain of ultra high speed frame and streak cameras. With tricky arrangements of foils, rods, spheres etc. in and around the charge the detonation front or reaction strength can be also very well observed and analyzed with flash-X-rays. Examples of test setups for the diagnostics with FXRs of high explosive charges to measure the time jitter of detonators alone or with explosive trains in multi initiation systems, the change of the detonation velocity of mild detonation cords by different arrangements or by mechanical treatment, the initiability of boosters with mild detonation cords, the internal reaction behavior of high explosive charges at corner turning test, the flow of reaction products, enhanced by embedded foils, reaction strength around a charge in a corner turning arrangement and the reaction behavior in gap test investigations will be shown and highlighted.
