Abstract : The correction factor for very fast, small amplitude explosions is calculated. The formal basis for defining the explosion time constant for EWP events is established. The electrical energy of the capacitor is related to the equivalent weight of explosive (TNT); circuit losses and wire heating requirements are accounted for. (Author)
