Shock Wave DataBase is a collection of numerous shock-wave experimental points. It includes
measurements of thermodynamic properties of matter in shock and isentropic
release waves. Collected are ca. 15000 points from 300 references for 500 substances
as ASCII; 80% of them are presented in this database. The work has been
performed under a support of Russian Foundation for Basic Research.
So it is for
free non-commercial use.
The very helpful feature of the database is a possibility to create graphs
with experimental points on them via Internet. Also you can perform calculations
of thermodynamic properties using Equations of State and compare the results
with experimental data in graphical form.
The database is based on freeware only:
1. Apache Web Server
2. PHP scripting language
3. PostgreSQL database server
