Abstract

The effect of the environmental pressure on the electrical explosion of a conductor (fine tungsten wire of diameter 30 μm) in an insulating liquid (distilled water) is studied. The pressure in the water is produced by exploding a multiwire array with the test conductor on its axis. Along with the experiment, the magnetohydrodynamic simulation of the explosion is carried out. It is shown that a high pressure produced in the explosion zone retards the electrical explosion of the conductor and, consequently, increases the explosion energy.
