Abstract : Precise continuous wire data obtained from shock-to-detonation transitions in cast DINA show that the voltage-time records cannot be interpreted directly as run length and total delay time. Corrections made for a thick conducting zone of reacted explosive needed to close the wire circuit give reasonable results. (Author)
