Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs and Surveys in Pure and Applie #132: Shock Waves & Explosions

Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs and Surveys in Pure and Applie #132: Shock Waves & Explosions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Understanding the causes and effects of explosions is important to experts in a broad range of disciplines, including the military, industrial and environmental research, aeronautic engineering, and applied mathematics. While offering an introductory review of historic research, Shock Waves & Explosions brings analytic and computational methods to a wide audience in a clear and thorough way. Beginning with an overview of the research on combustion and gas dynamics by Korobeinikov and Zeldovich in the 1970s and 1980s, the author brings readers up to date by covering modeling techniques and asymptotic and perturbative methods and ending with a chapter on computational methods.

Book News Annotation:

For readers with a basic knowledge of fluid mechanics and partial differential equations, Sachdev (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) looks at the phenomenon of explosions and shock waves within the larger context of hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations and their solutions. His approach is entirely constructive, and he discussed in detail both analytic and numerical methods; his arrangement follows the historical evolution of the research and applications. Among the topics are the piston problem, some early shock propagation theories, converging shock waves, spherical blast waves produced by the sudden expansion of a high pressure gas, and the numerical simulation of blast waves.
