Abstract

The results of theoretical, experimental researches and industrial introduction plasma method of hydro-electric-pulse breaking of rocks are stated in the paper. The physical processes which proceed in the plasma channel of the electrical discharge, dynamics of occurrence and development of the plasma channel between electrodes, list of the factors arising in a liquid during plasma electric-pulse processing are described. The hydro-dynamical phenomena in liquids which accompanying the electrical discharge are described.
