Flash X-Ray Computed Tomography for Three-Dimensional Characterization of Explosive Performance

Kyle Champley | 18-ERD-052

Executive Summary

We are developing a novel flash x-ray tomography capability that enables the characterization of complex, multi-material structures as they evolve over microseconds during dynamic events. This new capability can improve understanding of additively manufactured parts under dynamic load and help validate computational simulations of high-explosive detonations.
