Shockwave Physics Explained

This course introduced shockwaves that are generated by explosives and how they travel through different materials

Shockwave Physics Explained covers the development and travel of shockwaves which are generated by explosives. In nearly 6 hours of university level lecture, Dr. Anthony Konya takes students through the entire life of an explosive generated shockwave from a simplistic standpoint. This course is the perfect entry point for those with no background in shockwaves looking to gain better understand for how these forces work in the real world.

This course discusses shockwave generation, shockwave travel through materials, shockwave collisions, rarefaction waves, and rarefaction wave collision.

This course is Section 3 of the Explosive Engineering 1 program.
