The focus of this talk is on the shock compression behavior of materials, under different loading conditions (e.g., compression-shear loading) and at the atomistic-macroscopic spatial scales. In the first part of the talk, the role of solid-solid phase transformation on the dynamic strength behavior of iron is investigated, followed by exploring the role of material heterogeneities on shock structuring along the mesoscopic-macroscopic material scale in particulate composites. Lastly, a brief overview of shock experiments at the atomistic material scale is presented incorporating plate impact experiments with both laser interferometry (continuum measurements) and in-situ dynamic Laue x-ray diffraction at the Advanced Photon Source.

This talk is part of the Physics and Chemistry of Solids Group series.
