Title: The Thermal Instabilities on Electrical Explosion of Metal Wires

Abstract

An electrical explosion of thin metal wires at a current rise time of several tens of nanoseconds and at a current density of {approx}108 A/cm{sup 2} was studied. A two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic code based on the particle-in-cell method is used to calculate the formation of striations and a low-density plasma corona surrounding the wire.
