An exploding wire technique (EWT) is described, which provides high rates of loading by producing cylindrical blast waves of high reflection pressure with short duration. These waves have been used for internal impact of hollow polymeric cylindrical specimens. The EWT overcomes the small size restrictions of other high strain rate testing methods like the Split-Hopkinson pressure bar technique and drop weight. [Continues.]
