... mechanics. The accelerated plate in fact divides at the interface into two jets, called the salient and re-entrant jets ( Fig. 11.10e ), and the re-entrant jet sweeps the interface and scours off the contaminated surface layers. The two clean surfaces so produced are then pressed together by the explosive...
