A theory based on flow across a selected control volume is developed to predict the Hugoniot of a shock moving along the longitudinal direction of a unidirectional fiber reinforced composite. From this theory the Hugoniot of a composite may be calculated from the equations of state of its constituents. The shear force along the matrix-fiber interface can also be computed. A sample calculation using polyethylene as matrix and beryllium as fiber has been made. The calculated shock Hugoniot is not far from linear. Author
