The interaction between a wall and a wave in an elasto-plastic medium with an alternating sign of curvature of the stress-strain dependence sigma sigmaeta was examined earlier 1. The case of small stresses lying on the concave section of the diagram sigma sigmaeta, when the wave has no pressure jump at the front, has been investigated. Below, based on earlier studies 1, 2, we will give a solution to the problem of the interaction between a plane wave and a nonrigid wall or the boundary of media in the case of large stresses, corresponding to the section of the diagram sigmaeta which is con vex relative to axis eta. Here the wave is a shock wave.
