Explosion, Shock Wave and Hypervelocity Phenomena in Materials II
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The objective of this special-topic volume was to disseminate work on current trends in Explosion, Shock Wave and Hypervelocity Phenomena in Materials.
Recent years have witnessed an astonishing growth in research on materials science. Exotic new materials, innovative processing techniques and challenging computational methods make the pursuit of research in this field increasingly interesting and rewarding. Considering as it does, the significance of shock-wave phenomena in the rapidly changing materials-science scene, this collection of papers will undoubtedly foster further advanced research into the allied research areas of explosive, shock-wave and hypervelocity phenomena in materials.
The 66 peer-reviewed papers cover topics such as: shock waves, detonation and combustion, materials processing, numerical simulation and high strain-rate phenomena.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: This volume collects 60 papers from the March 2007 Second International Symposium on Explosion, Shock Wave and Hypervelocity Phenomena in Materials, organized by the Kumamoto University's (Japan) Shock Wave and Condensed Matter Research Center, 21st Century COE Program on Pulsed Power Science, and Faculty of Engineering in cooperation with Japan Explosive Society's Technical Section of Explosion and Impulsive Processing and the Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity's Committee of the High-Energy-Rate Forming. Some examples of topics addressed include development of a large diameter diaphragmless shock tube for gas-dynamic laser studies, behaviors of high explosive near the critical conditions for shock initiation of detonation, dynamic response of a steel pipe to internal blast loading, detonation behaviors of nitromethane with various initiating shock pressure, computational studies of the behavior of cellular structures under impact loading, numerical simulation of underwater explosive compaction process for compaction of tungsten powder, processing of advanced materials using conventional and shock techniques, dependence of blast attenuation on weight of barrier materials, sterilization of dry powdered foods by successive impacts, influence of inert copper and silicon carbide inserts on process of detonation transmission through water, and underwater explosive welding of thin magnesium plate onto metal plates.
