Abstract:

Some thermodynamic relations are derived along the principal Hugoniot of materials for which the Grueneisen relation is a function of volume only. Rather than being expressed in terms of traditional thermodynamic variables, such as volume and temperature, the relations are expressed in terms of the shock Hugoniot behavior and of a term grouping that is related to the Grueneisen function. By so doing, a new perspective is gained on both the nature of the Hugoniot as well as the interrelation of thermodynamic quantities along the Hugoniot.
