Composite liner design to maximize the shock pressure beyond megabars

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Among the solid liners made of a single material which are imploded onto a target under the same driving condition, the aluminum liner produces the highest shock pressure. The authors propose the composite liner design which can increase the shock pressure several times over the best performance obtainable from an aluminum liner. They have also developed a general formulation to optimize the composite liner design for any driving current, and derived a set of very useful scaling relations. Finally, the authors present some 1-D simulations of the optimal composite liners to be fielded at Pegasus and Procyon in the upcoming ... continued below
