Electrically exploded conductors generate tremendous transient pressures. They can be used to drive dynamic tests such as spall strength measurements and shock-induced phase transformations as well as manufacturing processes such as impact welding and high speed forming. While a significant body of research on the physics of exploded conductor exists, their application in manufacturing or fundamental research has been very limited. This research furthers the use of exploding conductors and makes dynamic experiments more accessible. The development of a device consisting of a flexible chamber capable of performing various types of experiments utilizing exploding conductors will be described. The chamber is also paired with a 16-channel photonic Doppler velocimeter capable of measuring speeds of up to 2 km/s with nanosecond temporal resolution. The results from such diagnostics will be presented along with representative experiments that can be conducted with the device.
