Abstract

Analytical expressions were developed using gas dynamic equations to evaluate the energy associated with the incident shock wave (incident energy) and the reflected shock wave (remaining energy) for a shock tube experiment. The real time deformation profile of the specimen being loaded by a shock tube was also used to calculate the deformation energy. A shock wave loading on a homogeneous aluminum panel in a simple shock tube experiment was used to illustrate the implementation of these methods. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
