This paper concentrates on numerical studies of thermally induced shock waves in a tantalum target using the commercial LS-Dyna code. Initial calculations of the stresses induced in the Neutrino Factory target are presented as well as an estimation of the shock stresses resulting from pulsed heating of a tantalum wire using an electric current.
