Abstract : The visit of Professor V. F. Nesterenko was successfully concluded and the principal objectives were accomplished. A collaborative effort on shock and shear initiated chemical reactions was started and is being continued. The focus of the work was on the Nb-Si and Ti-Si systems. A new methodology for investigating chemical reactions under shear was developed. Preliminary contacts with scientists at China Lake were established and are leading to continued collaboration. Professor Nesterenko was offered and accepted a position of Associate Professor at UCSD and is currently on the faculty of the Department of Applied Mechanics and Engineering Sciences.
