Shock loading and unloading states in Westerly granite are observing to 30 kb and from 0 to 30 mm of shock travel. Shock loading and unloading states in Solenhofen limestone are observed to 18 kb and from 0 to 19 mm of shock travel. Experiments with both rocks were conducted at constant impact velocity for several thicknesses. Several sets of these experiments for increasing stress and impact velocity were made to analyze the shock behavior based on time-distance plots at constant stress and constant particle velocity.
