Abstract : The papers in the volume are divided into three parts and arranged according to their presentation at the symposium. The first part contains the plenary lectures (sessions A) including the Paul Vieille (1A) and the Otto Laporte (7A) memorial lectures. The second part contains all the papers presented in sessions B and deals with the general field of shock waves and gasdynamics. Topics covered in these sessions included shock tube facilities, shock flow computations, ionized gases in shock waves, instrumentation and experimental techniques, shock reflections and interactions, shock waves and jets, and plasma flow. The papers in the third part are those presented in sessions C. They describe work related to chemical and physical processes in shock waves. Topics covered were chemical rate processes, detonations, diagnostics and experimental methods, lasers and energy and waves.
