As leading veterinary clinics look for alternatives to treating pain and lameness in dogs and possibly reducing pain medication use, shock wave is offering a well-studied and viable treatment alternative.
At the same time, due to the longer width of the lagging wave, the distance between shock wave fronts is larger than in the previous case (Fig.
If the region is reached by the back of a shock wave, the back of the shock wave and the flow thereafter becomes single phase.
The entropy equation across the shock wave in non-ideal gas may be written as Robert and Wu [8]
As the shock wave comes, it breaks it up into small shock-lets,'' said Michael Toberman, Dryden's program manager for Quiet Spike testing.
By applying shock waves in experiments using pigs, Japanese researchers achieved surprising results - a neoplasm of blood vessels in the heart was observed.
Energy released by the bubbles also creates a secondary shock wave.
The Caltech team members will attempt to build a virtual lithotriptor to simulate what happens to the kidney in a shock wave path.
Two years ago, the FDA approved the first device that uses extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) to treat chronic plantar fasciitis (see The Clinic).
Key features include: patented, piston shape delivers a more powerful and sustained shock wave; and energy recovery valve recycles rebounding shock waves and adds energy to the next blow.
Contrary to popular belief, a piece of rock fails not because it is crushed, but when a shock wave is created in the piece of rock by a sharp blow.
