The Formation of Onions at Shock-Wave Loading of Graphite


Article Preview

The results of experiments with shock – loading of graphite bar by sliding detonation wave of HE are presented in this paper. It were revealed the nano – sized onions at the SEM investigation in the preserved sample of Graphite. The estimation of the values of pressures of shock – loading permits to assume that the observed structures were formed directly by solid – solid transformation.
