Brings together the various analytical and experimental aspects of impact dynamics, presenting a broad overview of the response of material and structures subjected to intense short-duration loading under conditions varying from low-speed to hypervelocity. Provides a fundamental approach to the methods and techniques of a number of engineering and applied physical disciplines, demonstrating their application to ballistics, high strain rate materials behavior, safe design of materials and structures, and intense, short-duration loading and dynamic failure.
