ShockSoundSpeed EP Experiment

A material's equation of state (EOS) describes its response to high-pressure compression. Most EOS data are derived from shock-wave experiments that typically provide the "kinematic" portion of the Hugoniot.

Shown here is experimental data from the ShockSoundSpeed EP experiment plotted against SESAME tables for single-crystal quartz (7381), polycrystalline quartz (7385), and fused quartz (7386) calculated from the initial density of fused silica.
