Description: CRREL Report
Partial Abstract: A simple momentum model, assuming that snow compacts to its final density at negligible stress, is used to estimate shock wave attenuation in snow. Four shock loading situations are examined: a one-dimensional pressure impulse of finite duration and instantaneously applied pressure impulses for one-dimensional, cylindrical and spherical shock geometries.
