Abstract : An investigation was made of longitudinal shock waves of finite amplitude in non-linear hyperelastic materials. As a function of physically admissible thermodynamic hypotheses, an attempt was made to determine the nature of waves capable of stable propagation in the material or reflection from fixed or free confines which furnished indications on the thermodynamic properties which make possible the existence of these phenomena.
