Abstract : A Mixed-Phase equation of state was programmed for the PUFF material response code and the behavior of 2024 aluminum was investigated. Identical PUFF problems were run on the CDC 6600 computer at the Air Force Weapons Laboratory to compare the existing and Mixed-Phase equations of state. The Mixed-Phase formulation is a more realistic representation of the response of materials to nuclear radition, but it predicts responses qualitatively similar to those predicted by the existing equation of state.
