Many studies about the behavior of the structure by shock wave have been researched until now. On those researches, some metals, resin, glass, concrete, wood were handled as a structure, and on many studies it was clarified about processing and behavior by the shock wave. On the other hand, recently, bio-materials have attracted attention on the material dynamics. It is impotant to recognition the behavior of these materials by the shock loading. Therefore, we have investigated the deformation of bio-material by shock wave. As the first approach, the expansion behavior of a silicon tube by underwater shock wave has been investigated and some numerical simulations and experiment have been performed.
