About this book


Shock waves in multiphase flows refers to a rich variety of phenomena of interest to physicists, chemists, and fluid dynamicists, as well as mechanical, biomedical and aeronautical engineers. This volume treats shock and expansion waves in

(bullet) complex, bubbly liquids (L van Wijngaarden, Y Tomita, V Kedrinskii)           and
(bullet) cryogenic liquids (M Murakami)

and examines the relationship of shock waves with

(bullet) phase transitions (A Guha, CF Delale, G Schnerr, MEH van Dongen)
(bullet) induced phase transitions (GEA Meier)

as well as their interaction with

(bullet) solid foams, textiles, porous and granular media (B Skews, DMJ Smeulders, MEH van Dongen, V Golub, O Mirova)

All chapters are self-contained, so they can be read independently, although they are of course thematically interrelated. Taken together, they offer a timely reference on shock waves in multiphase flows, including new viewpoints and burgeoning developments. The book will appeal to beginners as well as professional scientists and engineers.
