Multidisciplinary University Research Program on Explosive Flux Compression
A 5-year DoD Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) Program devoted to the paper title was initiated on May 1, 1998. The program involves 3 universities with TTU as the lead university. The main responsibility of TTU is flux compression generator diagnostics, the power conditioning systems, and the metallurgical investigation. The actual explosive tests are done at the UMR and TAM University is investigating the conductivity of shocked gases, such as SF6, under high Mach numbers. Internationally known consultants are employed to aid in metallurgical analysis and computer simulations. Foreign cooperation has been established with Loughborough University in the UK. This paper describes the basic research program aimed at understanding flux compression generator losses and improving the power conditioning system.
