Abstract : The development of transducers for measurement in the high pressure region during conventional and nuclear explosions has necessitated the investigations of the shock characteristics of the grouts which are used to couple the transducers to the media, and, in addition, requires the development of grouts to match the behavior of the media, such as granite and rock salt. The standard plane wave generators and high explosives techniques, along with electronic velocity measurements, were used to determine the shock characteristics of the grout. The use of a Hugoniot synthesis provided a guide post for the development of grouts which, over a limited pressure range, match the shock characteristics of rock salt, basalt, and granite. (Author)
