Abstract:

The problem of a plane shock wave propagating in soils and in water is solved. The solution was obtained by means of the characteristic method on the electronic computer. In this case soils are regarded as multicomponent media in keeping with an earlier proposed model. Compared are the parameters of the waves and the dimensions of gas chambers in soils with different concentrations of components and in water.
