In a previous report to the sponsor, the design and description of a high speed framing camera was presented along with several film strips representing the results of a series of qualitative investigations of dynamic stress wave phenomena. These studies included crack propagation, layered media, compressed bars and beams, and cross sections of rocket heads. As part of a continuing study in these and related fields, a final report is submitted covering (1) exploratory experimental studies of shock wave propagation initiated by explosive caps and by nitrogen shock wave impingement, and (2) theoretical studies of a series of dynamic stress wave problems carried out in conjunction with the overall problem.
