Dynamic Compression Summer School Sample Itinerary

  • Day 1: Introduces dynamic compression science and the fundamentals of matter at high pressure.
  • Day 2: Continues with the foundations of dynamic compression, followed by an introduction to the opportunities available in dynamic compression science at the Institute for Shock Physics (ISP) at Washington State University.
  • Days 3 and 4: Builds upon the foundations laid during the first two days and focuses on applications of dynamic compression to address scientific problems in various areas including: materials science, geophysics and planetary physics, phase transformations, chemistry and mechanical engineering.
  • Day 5: Provides an overview of career opportunities in dynamic compression science, with perspectives by speakers from each of the three major National Laboratories (Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, and Sandia).
