High-Speed Fracture Phenomena of Glass Bottle by Underwater Shock Wave
The high-speed fracture phenomena of glass bottles by using underwater shock wave technique for recycling the glass containers were discussed. The proposed technique is an efficient method for the crushing of glass bottles. In this study, the influence of various explosive conditions, that is, the explosive shape, set position, amount, the bottle size and the contents of bottle, on the cullet size, which is the crushed glass fragments, was studied. Furthermore, the behaviors of underwater shock wave were observed by high-framing photograph and the high-speed fracture mechanism was clarified.
