Shock Wave Research: Remembrance of Professor I. I. Glass

  • Kazuyoshi Takayama
Conference paper


The paper reviews the author’s shock wave research inspired by Professor I. I Glass of UTIAS. Firstly, a preliminary underwater shock wave research by using a shock tube is briefly described. Secondly, small-scale underwater explosions of primary explosives visualized by means of double exposure holographic interferometry. Results of experiments performed by the refurbished hypervelocity shock tube donated from UTIAS to IFS in 1994 are presented.
