Abstract:

ON 10-11 September 1962, the Structures Division of the AFSWC Research Directorate sponsored a symposium on the equation of state for earth materials. The attendants were personnel who are under contract to the Structures Division, and personnel interested in this area of research. This document contains abstracts of the papers presented at the symposium. The abstracts reflect the current theoretical and experimental efforts being undertaken by the Structures Division in the area of equation of state for earth materials. In this text equation of state means the behavior of a material under given states of stress and boundary conditions regardless of the intensity of the applied stress. Thus, the results of a conventional triaxial test will be just as appropriate as the results from a flyer-plate experiment. Author
