Paper Abstract

The results of experimental studies on shock wave propagation in plexiglass are discussed. The wave was generated by a single laser pulse of 3 ns and 30 ns duration and of energy from 2 to 30 J. The characteristics of velocity variations of shock wave front propagation are presented in this paper.
