Explosion, Shock-Wave and High-Strain-Rate Phenomena of Advanced Materials
Materials processing using explosion, shock-wave and high-strain-rate phenomena was developed after WWII, and these explosive forming and welding techniques have since been adopted as an accepted industrial technology. Such extremely high-rate phenomena historically used empirical experiences while the experimental conditions were not well documented due to the difficulties inherent in understanding the real response or behaviour of materials. Based upon the recent development of numerical techniques for analysis and the enriched data available on the behaviour of materials, it is now possible to predict such high-rate phenomena based upon numerical and experimental approaches including optical observation. Explosion, Shock-wave and High-strain-rate Phenomena of Advanced Materials demonstrates the deformation of various materials at high-rate based upon numerical analysis and supported by experimental evidence. The book is recommended for researchers and engineers who would like to learn more about the high-rate effect of materials and those who need to resolve multi-physics problems based on numerical approach. It is also ideal for researchers and engineers interested with explosive and other high-rate processing of materials.
