   Results of experimental invertigations and magnitohygrodynamic simulation of elecrtical exlosion of wires as the method of nanosized powder production are of considerable importance in a particle formation. The particle size depends on the introduced energy, radius of wire, current density, and features of surrounding medium (density, chemical activity and electrical strength). The method makes possible to produce the powders based on various metals with the particle sizes of less then 100 nm.
