Wave phenomena in intensely loaded bodies are often paradoxical and unexpected. They are evoked by stress wave interactions and depend substantially on actual material properties, body shapes and dimensions, friction, etc. Their proper understanding is indispensable for the reliable evaluation of the quality of various technologies as nuclear reactor safety, armour penetration, nondestructive testing, etc. The paper presents a survey of analytical, computational and experimental techniques and methods being employed for the solutions of stress wave propagation problems in solids.
