We present data on shock wave propagation in porous ice under conditions applicable to the outer solar system. The equation of state of porous ice under low temperature and low pressure conditions agrees well with measurements under terrestrial conditions implying that data on terrestrial snow may be applicable to the outer solar system. We also observe rarefaction waves from small regions of increased porosity and calculate release wave velocities.

    We have numerically solved several problems related to converging shock waves, including (i) one-dimensional spherical and cylindrical waves with cumulation limited to a ball or cylinder of small radius and (ii) shock-wave flow in a cone-shaped solid target. The passage from a continuous loaded...

    Detonations in soil can occur due to several reasons: e.g. land mines or bombs from the Second World War. Soil is also often used as a protective barrier. In all cases the behaviour of soil loaded by shock waves is important. The simulation of shock wave loaded soil using hydro-codes like...

    Highly porous samples of tantalum pentoxide (Ta2O5) aerogel were compressed from initial densities of 0.1, 0.15, and 0.25 g/cm3 by shock waves with strengths between 0.3 and 3 Mbar. The compressed material was between 5 and 15 times as dense as the unshocked aerogels with temperatures of ∼5...

    The solar energetic particles (SEPs) of consequence to space weather are accelerated at shock waves driven out from the Sun by fast coronal mass ejections (CMEs). In the large events, these great shocks fill half of the heliosphere. SEP intensity profiles change appearance with longitude. Events...

    Shock Hugoniots of metal with different initial volume and pressure have been calculated with the use of multi-phase equation of state. An application of D'yakov-Kontorovich's criterion revealed an existence of specific sound instability in the liquid-gas region. The instability arises as a...
