Numerical modeling of shock-wave instability in thermodynamically nonideal media
A numerical analysis of the nonlinear instability of shock waves is presented for solid deuterium and for a model medium described by a properly constructed equation of state. The splitting of an unstable shock wave into an absolutely stable shock and a shock that emits acoustic waves is simulated for the first time.
