Abstract:

In connection with a general investigation of uncertainties in prediction capability for close-in ground motion due to buried explosions, rock salt halite is selected as an example of rock-like material for purposes of assessing uncertainties associated with methods for determining material properties and with models of material behavior. Uncertainties of techniques for laboratory measurement of shock and static compressibility and plastic flow properties and uncertainties of four different equations of state for highly compressed NaCl are discussed.
