Abstract: The development of both experimental and diagnostic equipment to assist with simulating the mechanical effects of cold X-ray deposition is covered by this work. This thesis reviews the various experimental techniques suitable for conducting the electromagnetic launch of flyer plates and the chosen technique is developed into a fully functional experimental facility. The development of a bespoke 1-dimensional computer model is also described in the text. A novel current distribution measurement technique is also fully described. This new diagnostic approach will allow the variation of the current across the width of a large conductor to be easily determined which is something not previously demonstrated.
