    • Abstract


      A new theory of shock dynamics (NTSD) has been derived in the form of a finite number of compatibility conditions along shock rays. It has been used to study the growth and decay of shock strengths for spherical and cylindrical pistons starting from a non-zero velocity. Further a weak shock theory has been derived using a simple perturbation method which admits an exact solution and also agrees with the classical decay laws for weak spherical and cylindrical shocks.
