In order to determinne the effects off heating on the pressure measurements, it is necessary to determine a temperature-vs-time relation for the Manganin gage wire. This is expected to be made up of two parts--direct shock heating of the wire and, predominantly, conduction of heat from the shocked C-7 insulator to the wire. The report deals with calculations of shock temperatures reached in the C-7 insulator due to Hugoniot pressures greater than 500 kbar.
