Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves

ISSN: 0010-5082 (Print) 1573-8345 (Online)


The journal Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves is one of the few worldwide publications of results obtained in research in physics and chemistry of combustion of substances in various phase states, detonation processes, obtaining new materials in combustion waves, shock waves, and detonation waves, explosive welding, response of materials and structures to dynamic loading, high-velocity impact, and powder compaction. Structural and chemical transformations of matter in shock and detonation waves and related phenomena are considered. Papers on the development of analytical and numerical models of phenomena under study are also published in the journal.

A specific feature of the journal is the wide scope of combustion and explosion topics: from initiation of combustion in gases to the response of materials to shock loading, from computer-aided modeling of detonation of powerful high explosives to obtaining superconducting materials under shock compression. Reviews are also published in addition to regular papers. Papers of high priority, which require rapid publication, are published without any delay in the section "Urgent communications."

Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves is a translation of the peer-reviewed journal Fizika Goreniya i Vzryza, a publication of the Siberian Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences since 1965. The English version of the journal is published simultaneously with the Russian original.
