Dimensionless equations of state and the attenuation of shock waves
Abstract
Consideration is given to dimensionless Hugionot equations of state for media with a linear dependence of wave propagation velocity on mass flowrate. Curves of isentropic expansion and repeated compression are calculated and attention is given to the accuracy of their description in the specularreflection approximation. Limits of applicability of the doubling principle in calculating the freesurface velocity are investigated. The problem of the attenuation of shock waves, generated in a half space by plate impact in dimensionless coordinates is investigated.
