Nanometer-Scale Shock-Front Structure in Metals

  • Paul A. Taylor (a1) and Brian W. Dodson (a1)


Molecular dynamics shock wave simulations have been performed, which for the first time include a realistic many-body description of the atomic interactions. The structural instabilities observed in the shock-front structure are dramatically influenced by the many-body effects of these atomic interactions.
