An Introduction to Equation of State & Shock Physics Research
A general introduction to Equation of State (EOS) and Shock Physics Research will be presented. The goal is to provide the audience with an overall sense of what is involved in producing a complete Equation of State (single and multi-phase) and what advanced methods (DFT, QMD, etc.) are being utilized to better constrain the thermodynamic models. I will also present a variety of shock data results and show how these results are utilized in validating our EOS. The general interest of this work spans the following disciplines: Physicists, Chemists, Material Scientists, Mechanical Engineers, Geophysicists, and Applied Mathematicians.
Scott Crockett is an alumnus of UND (99, 01) and an Adjunct Professor of Physics.
