Peculiarities of evolutions of elastic-plastic shock compression waves in different materials Academic Article uri icon


  • In the paper, we discuss such unexpected features in the wave evolution in solids as strongly nonlinear uniaxial elastic compression in a picosecond time range, a departure from self-similar development of the wave process which is accompanied with apparent sub-sonic wave propagation, changes of shape of elastic precursor wave as a result of variations in the material structure and the temperature, unexpected peculiarities of reflection of elastic-plastic waves from free surface.
