Description
Shock waves represent an extremely important physical phenomena which appear to be of special practical importance in three major fields: compressible flow (aerodynamics), materials science, and astrophysics. Shock waves comprise a phenomena that occur when pressure builds to force a reaction, i.e. sonic boom that occurs when a jet breaks the speed of sound. The Handbook of Shock Waves contains a comprehensive, structured, coverage of research topics related to shock wave phenomena including shock waves in gases, liquids, solids, and space.<P>This Handbook is the first of its kind containing experimental, theoretical, and numerical results which never before appeared under one cover.<P>The Handbook of Shock Waves is beneficial for scientists, engineers, lecturers, and students involved in shock wave research for broadening their knowledge and understanding by providing detailed information in a wide range of shock wave related topics.
