Abstract:

High pressure hugoniot state measurements were performed on five Nevada test site NTS rocks, a schitose gneiss and a volcanic tuff impedance-matching grout. In addition several experiments were performed on OFHC copper and a copper-nickel-tungsten alloy. These two metals were employed throughout the program as hugoniot impedance match standards. The report describes the experimental procedures and target designs employed. The data analysis procedure is presented with a discussion of sources of experimental error. Author
