Shock waves represent an extremely important physical phenomena which appears to be of special practical importance in three major fields: compressible flow (aerodynamics), materials science, and astrophysics. Shock waves comprise a phenomenon that occurs when pressure builds to force a reaction, i.e. sonic boom that occurs when a jet breaks the speed of sound.
This Handbook contains experimental, theoretical, and numerical results which never before appeared under one cover; the first handbook of its kind.
The Handbook of Shock Waves is intended for researchers and engineers active in shock wave related fields. Additionally, R&D establishments, applied science & research laboratories and scientific and engineering libraries both in universities and government institutions. As well as, undergraduate and graduate students in fluid mechanics, gas dynamics, and physics.
* Ben-Dor is known as one of the founders of the field of shock waves
* Covers a broad spectrum of shock wave research topics
* Provides a comprehensive description of various shock wave related subjects
* First handbook ever to include under one separate cover: experimental, theoretical, and numerical results
