Abstract:

Mathematical modelling and analysis are described for studies of the dynamical response of gaseous and solid materials inert or reactive to localized rapid power deposition. Theoretical, analytical and numerical methods are developed to find general properties of nonlinear equation systems and explicit solutions for specific initial-boundary value problems. Emphasis is placed on physical interpretation of mathematical results for the transient evolution of spatially distributed thermal and gasdynamic responses. New results are given for thermal explosion processes, for transient development of shocks and detonations, for the role of nonlinear acoustics in gascompression and for thermoacoustically induced mass transfer.
