This talk is being given as part of the selection process for the University Lectureship in Condensed Matter Physics. All welcome

Is variety the spice of life, or are inhomogeneities the flies in the ointment of experimentation? This talk will explore the response of a number of inhomogeneous systems to high rate loading, including metallic powders and geological materials. Results will be presented to demonstrate the progress made to date, as well as detailing some of the challenges encountered. The future direction of research in this area will be discussed in terms of the scientific goals, optimisation of existing industrial exploitation, and potential new routes to impact.

This talk is part of the Special Departmental Seminars series.
