Abstract : Two Russian scientists were invited to spend six months at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, to develop and promote individual research interactions that are of mutual benefits in the field of shock compression chemistry. The principal results of their visits are (1) up-to-date reviews and evaluations not only of their own research activities, but also of Russian publications since 1986, (2) a comparative study of U.S. and Russian approaches to the modeling of heterogeneous continual, and (3) the development of a new computational technique to analyze and interpret the mesoscale response of heterogeneous media to shock loading. A further extension of the third project will be continued at one of the home institutions in Russia under the auspices of the program titled 'Industrial Partnering with the New Independent States of the Former Soviet Union.'
