On the occasion of the Distinguished Scientist Award presentation made at the 1994 Hypervelocity Impact Symposium, the capabilities for using time-resolved wave structure measurements to explore a wide range of dynamic material response were discussed. The presentation provided a brief summary of...
A method is described that allows penetration of thin aluminum plates at velocities up to 23 km/s to be simulated in experiments conducted at actual velocities below 7 km/s. This is accomplished by replacing the impactor and plate materials by an appropriate surrogate material that reproduces, at...
