This research is concerned with a theoretical investigation of intense pressure pulses in water. These pulses are due to the bow and recompression shocks created by a projectile which is fired from an electromagnetic rail gun. The velocities are on the order of 10 km/s and the associated overpressures are 10,000 atmospheres.
