HVIS is devoted to the advancement of the science and technology of hypervelocity impact and related technical areas, such as:
- Experimental techniques,
- Theoretical and analytical studies,
- Numerical advancements, and
- Material response,
required to facilitate an understanding of hypervelocity impact phenomena. Hypervelocity impact is defined as the impact regime in which shock effects are important.
The objectives of the Hypervelocity Impact Society are to foster the development and exchange of technical information in the discipline of hypervelocity impact phenomena by promoting technical excellence, encouraging peer review publications, and holding technical meetings on a periodic basis.
For more detailed information about the Society please consult the HVIS Constitution and Bylaws.
