Hardness variation in steel as result of loading by low-intensity plane shock wave

  • A. V. Maslakov
Scientific-Technical Section


The effect of loading by a low-intensity plane shock wave (to 1.3 GPa) on the hardness variation in steel 20 specimens is investigated. An increase in the hardness and deformation both at the center and on the periphery (higher) with increasing duration of collision and number of blows is established.
