The synopsis of shock wave science presented in this book describes the pioneering research conducted at Sandia over the past 60 years. The shock wave program was organized and conducted rather differently from that of similar research programs at other institutions. Two separate shock wave research efforts were established in the 1950s, one focused on scientific understanding of shock compression processes and the other on engineering applications.
