Abstract : Methods of obtaining the Hugoniot equation of state were investigated. Several of these, employing high explosive devices, were used to obtain Hugoniot data for mineral samples common to many igneous rocks. Hugoniot data werefound for orthoclase, oligoclase, labradorite and olivine in the pressure range from 50 to 300 kilobars. Analytical synthesis models were constructed and used to determine the synthesized Hugoniot equations of state for granodiorite, gabbro and dunite. These compared favorably with existing Hugoniot data for similar materials. Methods were also developed and used to predict, roughly, Hugoniot curves for other geological composites for which no experimental data are presently available. These materials included syenite, quartzdiorite, diorite, olivine diabase, and diabase. Estimates of temperatures along the Hugoniots and along several selected unloading adiabats were calculated for several minerals and igneous rocks.
