Shock Wave Rise Time and the Viscosity of Liquids and Solids
With the goal to verify universality of the well-known Swegle-Grady fourth-power relation between the shock pressure and the rate of compression in plastic shock waves, we performed direct comparison of the results of measurements of shock waves in titanium and in glycerol. The universality has not been confirmed, but has been explained in terms of the different natures of the viscosities of liquids and crystalline solids.
