Synopses & Reviews
This volume is devoted to the problems directly connected to the propagation of shock waves, blast waves and detonations and their interaction with various structures, gaseous, liquid or solid. Scientists working in the fields of shock-
structure interaction will be interested by the number and level of papers, and engineers may be attracted by the multiple aspects of shock, blast and detonation propagation.
Recently, there have been significant advances in the fields of high-enthalpy hypersonic flows, high-temperature gas physics, and chemistry shock propagation in various media, industrial and medical applications of shock waves, and shock-tube technology. This series contains all the papers and lectures of the 19th International Symposium on Shock Waves held in Marseille in 1993. They are published in four topical volumes, each containing papers on related topics, and preceded by an overview written by a leading international expert. The volumes may be purchased independently.
