Hydrostatic and shock-wave compression of a molecular crystals


  • Dr. Ewgeny SMIRNOV

Primary authors



The report presents analysis of experimental data on hydrostatic and shock-wave compression of energy-saturated material. The semi-empirical Mie-Gruneisen equation of state was used to describe thermodynamic properties of metastable molecular crystals without considering phase transitions. The equation of state describes experimental data on isothermal compression of a molecular crystal, and this data is obtained using the powder diffraction method. The Hugoniot curve expression plausibly describes shock-compression data on the studied material having various initial porosities.
