Build your own Shockwave deformer using ICE

The wave function
The shockwave will be constructed by two sets of waves – a somewhat smaller, condensed part followed by the larger more intense pulse. Even though a shockwave is an ideal candidate for simulation, it has a slight drawback – namely that it is simulated. Whenever you want to change a value or reposition the shockwave, you have to rewind and run the simulation again. An alternative approach is to do a bit of high school math.
