The shock behavior of a new Ti-6Al-4V alloy has been characterized up to stress levels of 13 GPa. Examination of velocity profiles obtained from five transmission experiments indicate elastic-plastic behavior in the material. Magnitude of the HEL lies between 2 - 3 GPa and appears to be dependent on material thickness. Spall strength tends to vary with changes in pulse width, ranging from 3.3 - 4.2 GPa.
