Abstract

The paper describes the research into the effect of the energy supplied to the conductor at the time of explosion on the particle size distribution of aluminum powders obtained. To investigate the properties of these powders, we used transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis, and thermal desorption of nitrogen (Brunauer-Emmett-Teller method). The paper specifies the specific surface areas of the powders and studies their morphology and structure. Aluminum powders consist of at least three fractions with the average particle size of 20-100 μm, 1-5 μm, and 50-900 nm. The yield of each fraction and average particle size are determined by the level of energy supplied to the conductor.
