Paper Abstract

Molecular dynamics investigation of central impact of thin plate impactor to target form the same material is presented. The particles are interpreted as elements of the mesoscopic scale level. Relation of the strain, velocity, and dispersion inside the material on the longitudinal coordinate z is investigated. It is shown that the particle velocity dispersion is initialized by the shock wave front and follows it with a small delay. From the computer experiments it follows that in spite of the double free surface velocity rise the velocity dispersion on the free surface doesn't increase. Kinetic processes in the zone of the spall fracture are investigated.
