Abstract

The release of solids from a state of shock compression at a free surface is examined. For isentropic release, the postshock specific volume V[prime]0 is shown to be constrained by V[prime]0? (Ufs–Up)2/P1+V1, where (P1,V1) is the pressure-volume Hugoniot state of shock compression and Ufs and Up are the free-surface and shock particle velocities, respectively. When a sudden phase change occurs during the release process, this lower bound is increased, subject to simplifying assumptions about the phase transition.
