Abstract : The document reports on a preliminary investigation to determine whether explosive driven magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) can be scaled to multimegajoule levels and produce quickly repeating pulses at these high energy levels. In the study, pulse durations below one millisecond are of primary concern. (Author)
