  • Sixty years after the first magnetic flux compression experiments were performed, it is now appropriate to attempt a classification of the various devices that are known collectively as either magnetic flux-compression generators or magnetocumulative generators. This paper summarises the main characteristics on which such a classification of generators can conveniently be based, with emphasis given to the helical form that is undoubtedly the most common type of generator in use today.
