Abstract

Electrical explosion of aluminum and tungsten microwires in water was studied both experimentally and numerically. The experimental range of currents through the wire was 0.1-1 kA for explosion times of 40-300 ns and current densities up to 1.5 × 108 A/cm2. The experimental results were interpreted on the basis of magnetohydrodynamical simulation with various metal conductivity models. A comparison of the experimental and numerical results allows the conclusion to be drawn that the metal conductivity models used in this work are adequate.
