Rise time in shock consolidation of materials


The rise time of a strong shock wave propagating through a porous material is estimated by analyzing the finite deformation of an elastic/viscoplastic spherical shell under impulsive pressure loading. The analysis examines explicitly the effects of dynamic loading rate and initial temperature and explains the relatively large shock rise times observed in porous materials. Results of the analysis provide a consistent and realistic interpretation of available experimental data.
