Part of the Shock Wave and High Pressure Phenomena book series (SHOCKWAVE)


Solids have strength that requires a different treatment than done for a fluid. This chapter will give the treatment of an elastic–plastic solid, porous solids, and strength of materials after being shock compressed. For some materials the elastic–plastic model will not be adequate and the reader will have to find the more sophisticated approach in the literature.
