Expendable, explosively driven shock tubes are used to propel aluminum flyer plates toward dense stainless steel plugs to simulate gas compression in explosive magnetic flux compression generators (FCGs). Armature velocity in a typical FCG is calculated using the Gurney method and shock tubes are designed to drive the flyer plates at similar velocities. Experiments with sulfur hexafluoride and synthetic air are presented
