- Explosively formed projectile : A technique of using controlled explosives to direct a blast wave, or materials near it, into a desired shape
- Hydrodynamic testing : During an high-speed event driven by explosives, such as the implosion of a fission device, the high pressures and temperatures cause metals and other materials to flow like liquids; the behavior can be described by fluid dynamics techniques; to observe these flows require high-speed flashes of X-rays or proton
