This paper presents an analysis of the equations describing electromagnetic
oscillations in coupled coil and ring circuits. Based on this analysis, an equation had been
established that allows determining the ring current, which was calculated for a wide range of
capacitor voltages. Two experimental methods for determination of the current and Ampere
force in a ring sample, as well as the radial pressure on its internal surface and its circumferential
stress were developed and implemented.
Keywords: thin metal ring samples; magnetic pulse loading; dynamic deformation and fracture.
