    Abstract

    When a strong shock wave passes through an ordinary material, the pressure, temperature, internal energy, and entropy increase. The pressure is subsequently relieved by a rarefaction wave which in the ideal case is characterized as a constant entropy process. The net result of a shock followed by a rarefaction is thus an increase in entropy and consequently an increase in temperature and internal energy.
