Abstract:

A review is given of the research efforts sponsored by the German Defense Ministry to investigate the early-time interaction between a shock wave and a tunnel and the subsequent collapse of the latter. The result is given in the form of empirical equations describing the motion of the wall and a suggested way of studying the collapse mechanism. Author
