Abstract

An experimental technique capable of determining the dynamic tensile (spall) strength of metals in the liquid state is described. Relying on this technique, spall data on samples of tin, lead, and zinc pre-heated to 20 K above their melting points were obtained. It is found that the spall strength of the metals is low, 40-100 MPa, but not zero and is, seemingly, affected by material purity and by the rate of tensile deformation preceding sample spallation.
