Abstract : Progress relative to the explosive compaction of hot metallic and ceramic materials is described. The compaction technique, explosive characterization and initial computations of compaction with a two-dimensional Lagrangian finite-difference computer code TROTT are described. Computed results are shown to indicate how sample, container, explosive and unloading waves influence the compaction process.
