  • Austin, Michael G.; Thomsen, Jeffrey M.; Ruhl, Stephen F.; Orphal, Dennis L.; Schultz, Peter H., 1944- (Pergamon Press, 1980)
    A two-dimensional finite difference calculation of a laboratory-scale hypervelocity (6 km/sec) impact of a 0.3 g spherical 2024 aluminum projectile into a homogeneous plasticene clay halfspace has been carried out to a ...
  • Clanton, Uel S., 1931-; Zook, Herbert A.; Schultz, Richard A. (Pergamon Press, 1980)
    The three largest Skylab IV Command Module windows that were exposed for 84 days to space were optically scanned for impact features as small as 30 µm in diameter. Some 289 features were recorded from the 35x scan for later ...
  • Orphal, Dennis L.; Borden, W. F.; Larson, S. A.; Schultz, Peter H., 1944- (Pergamon Press, 1980)
    A series of continuum mechanics computer code calculations are planned to investigate the effects of variations in impactor mass and velocity on the generation and transport of impact melt. Results from the first two ...
  • Strelitz, Richard (Pergamon Press, 1979)
    Probability arguments would indicate that about 70% of the meteorite influx would land in the oceans, yet there is no obvious and compelling evidence for such events, especially for craters that would, on land, be of the ...
  • Srnka, L. J. (Pergamon Press, 1977)
    At sufficiently high impact velocities, plasma clouds are generated in the early stages of hypervelocity impacts.
  • Collins, Gareth S.; Patel, N.; Davison, Thomas M.; Rae, Auriol S. P.; Morgan, Joanna V.; Gulick, Sean P. S.; Kring, David A. (David Allen); (Nature, 2020-05-26)
    The environmental severity of large impacts on Earth is influenced by their impact trajectory. Impact direction and angle to the target plane affect the volume and depth of origin of vaporized target, as well as the ...
