Can Shocks Produced from Perturbed Bimaterial Interfaces be Used to Estimate Dynamic Strength?

The objective of this research is to perform careful experimental measurements of propagation of perturbed shock waves in metallic samples to estimate dynamic strength. Relationships derived from hydrocode simulations will determine optimum experimental geometries that can be used to carry out experiments in these geometries to validate direct numerical simulations of the tests. The findings will further our understandings of dynamic strength effects on the evolution of hydrodynamic instabilities in solids and potentially lead to a new technique to evaluate dynamic strength of solids under extreme loading conditions. Results have potential applications to design better ballistic armor and protection systems.
