Shock Wave and Extreme Conditions Group

As a special interest, member-driven group, we are interested in both the fundamental principles underpinning, and application of science, engineering and technology, to all forms of matter.

This applies to: 

  • static high pressures, shock waves, blast and energetic materials
  • materials characterization across a range of strain rates (static to dynamic)
  • high pressure or high-rate materials synthesis
  • development of equations of state and constitutive models
  • effects of high energy and high-rate energy deposition
  • high-speed transient phenomena
  • pressure, energy, temperature and extreme rates ranging from biological, soft systems to dislocation behaviour in single crystals

We initiate and develop links between physicists and other researchers in the multi-disciplinary area of material behaviour under extreme conditions, from dynamic through to static events.
