There are several studies in the literature regarding the equation of state of alumina-epoxy composites. Although this single component system interacts in a complex manner with shock waves, the addition of a second metal or ceramic particulate can result in even more complex interactions. This paper presents a review of shock loading studies on epoxy-based particulate composites. The relationship between equation of state parameters and particulate concentration is investigated. The measured shock properties are compared with a mixture model for two and three phases.
