This book examines blast waves-their methods of generation, their propagation in several dimensions through the real atmosphere and layered gases, and their interactions with simple structures-thereby providing a broad overview of the field. The intended audience has a basic knowledge of algebra and a good grasp of the concepts of conservation of mass and energy. The text includes an introduction to blast wave terminology and conservation laws, and there is a discussion of units and the importance of consistency.

Produktbeschreibung
This book examines blast waves-their methods of generation, their propagation in several dimensions through the real atmosphere and layered gases, and their interactions with simple structures-thereby providing a broad overview of the field. The intended audience has a basic knowledge of algebra and a good grasp of the concepts of conservation of mass and energy. The text includes an introduction to blast wave terminology and conservation laws, and there is a discussion of units and the importance of consistency. This new edition of Blast Waves has been thoroughly updated and includes two new chapters that cover numerical hydrodynamics and blast injury. Authored by an expert with over forty years of experience in the field of blast and shock, this book offers many lessons as well as a historical perspective on developments in the field.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:
"This book, written by a distinguished expert on blast waves with more than 40 years of experience in the field, is a welcome addition to the blast wave community. ... Important aspects concerning the effects of blast waves on structures are thoroughly presented and illuminated. On the whole I find that the book will serve as an excellent guide and reference to practicing scientists, engineers, and researchers in the field of blast waves. It will be a valuable addition to the library." (Max Kandula, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 16 (2), 2011)
