Abstract

Stress waves generated in a heat shield by the application of pressure pulses of short duration are analyzed. The heat shield consists of three layers- an anisotropic layer of heat- protective material, a layer of metal, and the layer of adhesive. If the external pressure pulse is short, substantial tensile stresses may occur at the interface. From the point of view of prevention of delamination, excessive tensile stresses at an interface are undesirable.
