Publishes research papers on the combustion of condensed, gas, and disperse systems, detonation, and shock-wave propagation
Emphasizes Physics and Chemistry of Combustion and Detonation Processes; Structural and Chemical Transformation of Matter in Shock and Detonation Waves, and Related Phenomena
Published in English simultaneously with the Russian original, Fizika Goreniya i Vzryza
The journal Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves is one of the few worldwide publications of results obtained in research in physics and chemistry of combustion of substances in various phase states, detonation processes, obtaining new materials in combustion waves, shock waves, and detonation waves, explosive welding, response of materials and structures to dynamic loading, high-velocity impact, and powder compaction. Structural and chemical transformations of matter in shock and detonation waves and related phenomena are considered. Papers on the development of analytical and numerical models of phenomena under study are also published in the journal.
A specific feature of the journal is the wide scope of combustion and explosion topics: from initiation of combustion in gases to the response of materials to shock loading, from computer-aided modeling of detonation of powerful high explosives to obtaining superconducting materials under shock compression. Reviews are also published in addition to regular papers. Papers of high priority, which require rapid publication, are published without any delay in the section "Urgent communications."
Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves is a translation of the peer-reviewed journal Fizika Goreniya i Vzryza, a publication of the Siberian Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences since 1965. The English version of the journal is published simultaneously with the Russian original.
Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves is a translation of Fizika Goreniya i Vzryva, a publication of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk. Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves presents top-level works in the physics and chemistry of combustion and detonation processes, structural and chemical transformation of matter in shock and detonation waves, and related phenomena. Each issue contains valuable contributions on: initiation of detonation in condensed and gaseous phases, environmental consequences of combustion and explosion, engine and power unit combustion, production of new materials by shock and detonation waves, explosion welding, explosive compaction of powders, dynamic responses of materials and constructions, and hypervelocity impact.
