On the Growth and Decay of One-Dimensional Acceleration Waves

Conference paper


Paper I of this series laid the foundations of a theory of one-dimensional shock and acceleration waves in general nonlinear materials with memory and gave formulae for the velocity of such waves [1].* There the reader will find a detailed explanation of the terminology to be used here and examples of circumstances in which the behavior of three-dimensional bodies is described by the one-dimensional theory.
