Material Properties Under Intensive Dynamic Loading

Material Properties Under Intensive Dynamic Loading

Understanding the physical and thermomechanical response of materials subjected to intensive dynamic loading is a challenge of great significance in engineering today. This volume assumes the task of gathering both experimental and diagnostic methods in one place, since not much information has been previously disseminated in the scientific literature. This book will thus be an invaluable companion for both the seasoned practitioner as well as for the novice entering the field of experimental shock physics.
