Abstract:

The Hugoniot of 5083H131 aluminum has been experimentally determined in the pressure range from 161 to 472 kilobars. Over this pressure range the shock velocity-particle velocity relationship was found to be linear. The optical and electrical techniques used for the measurements and the methods for data reduction are described. A revised Hugoniot for polymethylmethacrylate and an approximate Hugoniot for mica were required in the electrical technique and are included as appendixes.
