Optical probing is one of the most widely used diagnostics for the study of shock waves emerging from a free surface of a metal. A clear understanding of the optical signatures such as reflectivity and emission intensity is therefore of long standing interest. Using numerical simulations, we will delineate the roles of the shock front structure and various processes that impose significant impact on the diagnostic. Our model prediction will also be compared with reported experimental results.

    Ejecta can be produced when a shock breaks out of a metallic surface with imperfections. The amount of material ejected depends on the wave profile and the surface finish. This work focuses on techniques to reduce the amount of ejecta produced. As a baseline, a Taylor wave loading was produced...
