The thin foil acceleration method was tested in explosively-driven experiments with shock compressed PMMA and polyethylene at shock pressures up to 35 GPa. A transition was observed from the behavior expected for condensed matter to the gas-like response of the PMMA samples. Measurements of the PMMA unloading isentrope have been completed by modification of the equation of state in the vaporization region.

    Experiments with lasers have recently provided important improvements in our knowledge of highly compressed matter (in particular, Equation Of State). We present recent results on iron which are relevant to planetary physics. We measured the free surface velocity of the compressed iron by using...

    A comprehensive, 1-D model of steady-state detonation of a condensed explosive with inert particles was developed. The interaction between the particles and leading shock wave front was described by a novel approach accounting for the penetration of a single particle through the shock wave and...
