Title: Internal Fractures in Solids of Revolution due to Stress Wave Focusing
Issue Date: 1981
Abstract: Internal fractures in spherical, paraboloidal, hyperboloidal and elliptical solids subjected to concentrated surface explosive loading are investigated. The initiation and growth of the internal fractures are associated with the focusing effect of P and S wave fronts reflected from the curved boundaries. High speed photography on perspex specimen is used for the verification of predictions of simple methods of geometrical optics and propagation of discontinuities. The speed with which these internal fractures grow are found to depend upon the geometry of the surface of the solid.
