Unsteady compressive waves were measured in the plastic-bonded, HMX-based explosive PBX 9501 using multiple, embedded, magnetic gauges that measured particle velocity. Records were obtained for impact stresses near 300 and 570 MPa. These results are analyzed using Lagrangian analysis to obtain stress-time and stress-strain curves at gauge positions.
