Most of the work has been on shock dynamics, a term we use for problems of the focusing of curved shocks, the diffraction of shocks by bodies or density layers, the propagation of shocks down curved tubes and channels, and the stability of converging shocks. Our earlier theoretical work is described in the book Linear and Nonlinear by G.B. Whitham, and references given there. This theoretical work on shock dynamics had been found by experimenters to be extremely useful in practical situations. However, the analytic results had been limited to fairly simple situations. The numerical scheme originally proposed was again limited and could not hope to handle some of the interesting practical situations.

Mass, momentum and energy flux in water waves ( Book )
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper gives a direct derivation of some results obtained by Longuet-Higgins and Stewart on the amplitude variation of waves propagating on a non-uniform stream. The derivation raises a number of subtle points in the use of the equations of conservation of mass, momentum and energy. These points are of general interest and are discussed in detail with other applications, since they do not seem to have been pointed out previously. (Author)

DYNAMICS OF METEOROLOGICAL FRONTS ( Book )
1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The dynamical equations of meteorological fronts (AD-15 688) are approximated to obtain equations of motion. Results are obtained by assuming a simple-wave solution. Warm and cold front behavior is discussed in terms of the solution, and sketches are included for the distortion of a warm and cold front system with time
