Basic Concepts and Models

  • Robert A. Graham
Part of the High-Pressure Shock Compression of Condensed Matter book series (SHOCKWAVE)


In this chapter: the regimes of mechanical response; nonlinear elastic compression; stress tensors; the Hugoniot elastic limit; elastic-plastic deformation; hydrodynamic flow; phase transformation; release waves; other mechanical aspects of shock propagation; first-order and second-order behaviors.
