Effect of Subatmospheric Pressure on Deposited Energy for Electrical Wire Explosion in Air

Abstract

Pressure is an important factor for the effect of the medium in the process of the electrical explosion of wire in air. In this paper, the electrical explosions of copper and aluminum wires at different air pressures in the range of subatmospheric pressure were investigated with pulsed voltage in a submicrosecond time scale. Based on the measurements of the… (More)
