Abstract:

Successive theoretical calculation of the thermodynamic properties of a substance in the condensed state involves the quantum mechanics problem of many bodies when there exists a strong interaction among them. At the present time this cannot be achieved in a general form. In this situation experimental, primarily dynamic, research methods based on obtaining the necessary state by compression and irreversible heating of the medium at the front of a strong shock wave acquire particular significance. In dynamic experiments registration of the kinematic parameters of propagation of a shock discontinuity makes it possible, by using the general laws of conservation on the shock wave front, to determine the equation of state in a caloric form EEp, V for the entire region of the pV plane accessible in the experiment.
