Part of the High-Pressure Shock Compression of Condensed Matter book series (SHOCKWAVE)


Because shock-wave and high-strain-rate phenomena are involved in a broad range of technological applications, we are interested in understanding time-dependent mechanical properties of materials subjected to these extreme loading conditions. The shock-wave technique also provides a powerful tool for scientific investigation of material properties at extremely high strain rates. With modern diagnostics, elastic-plastic yielding can be studied by recording and analyzing shock-wave structures. Investigations of the resistance of materials to shock-wave deformation are based on the analysis of elastic precursors in compression and rarefaction waves, of plastic shock-front rise times, on measurements of principal stresses in shock-compressed matter, and on other more sophisticated measurements and analyses. Empirical data are generalized by constitutive relationships that are used, for example, for computer simulations of impact phenomena.
