Title: Spherical explosions and the equation of state of water

Spherical explosions and the equation of state of water We have successfully calculated an experiment in which a sphere of detonated nitromethane expands into water. The calculations are sensitive to both the nitromethane and water equations of state. For water, the most important aspect of the equation of state is the Hugoniot. 11 refs., 7 figs.
