Physical Modeling of Magneto Hydrodynamic Explosive Munition and Detonation Control
Definition of magneto hydrodynamic explosive munition is introduced. The technology that magneto hydrodynamic loaded EFP is presented. The magneto hydrodynamic power is generated by MFCG. The physical model of magneto hydrodynamic explosive munition using ferroelectric ceramics as primary source is established. The equivalent circuit of primary source, MFCG and magneto hydrodynamic accelerating model is analyzed by current transfer process. The security system is designed for the new ammunition, and its initiation timing is analyzed. A microsecond detonation control method is also given.
