Abstract : Electrical resistance changes in aluminum have been measured during shock compression and compared with theoretical values calculated from equation of state data. The measured changes in resistance are larger than changes predicted by the calculations which only take account of the effects of lattice compression and shock temperature. This difference is thought to be due to shock-induced lattice defects, especially dislocations, which were not considered theoretically. (Author)
