Abstract:

Propagation of stress waves and shocks in ine astic media are studied for semi-infinite body loaded at its free surface; first type of material postulated is looking medium, which responds elasto-plastically at low stress levels but behaves as rigid body after it is compressed; second type of medium exhibits constant modulus of elasticity on initial loading and second larger modulus on unloading.
