Item description for High-Pressure Shock Compression of Solids VIII: The Science and Technology of High-Velocity Impact (Shock Wave and High Pressure Phenomena) by L.C. Chhabildas...
Research in the field of shock physics and ballistic impact has always been intimately tied to progress in development of facilities for accelerating projectiles to high velocity and instrumentation for recording impact phenomena. The chapters of this book, written by leading US and European experts, cover a broad range of topics and address researchers concerned with questions of material behaviour under impulsive loading and the equations of state of matter, as well as the design of suitable instrumentation such as gas guns and high-speed diagnostics. Applications include high-speed impact dynamics, the inner composition of planets, syntheses of new materials and materials processing. Among the more technologically oriented applications treatedis the testing of the flight characteristics of aeroballistic models and the assessment of impacts in the aerospace industry.
