Shock Dynamics for Cylindrical/Spherical Converging Shocks in Elastic-Plastic Solids
The study of cylindrical and spherical converging shock waves propagating in solid materials is relevant to the production of high temperatures and pressures in condensed matter with applications to inertial confinement fusion . However, experimental studies conducted in the area are prone to complications derived from the measurement techniques available and the difficulty of producing a quasi-radially symmetric flow.
