Abstract:

One hundred ten papers were presented in 32 sessions. Topics included The application of Hook-method spectroscopy to the diagnosis of shock- heated gases. The nonintrusive destruction of kidney stones by underwater focused shock waves. Several of the papers reflect the recent and continuing interest in shock wave phenomena in dusty gases and other multiphase and heterogeneous systems, including chemically reactive configurations. The major subject areas were Shock propagation and interactions Shock-general chemical kinetics Shock computation, modeling, and stability problems Shock wave aerodynamics Experimental methods Shocks in multiphase and heterogeneous media High energy gas excitation and wave phenomena and Technical applications and shocks in condensed matter.
