Title: Equation of State and Shock-Driven Decomposition of 'Soft' Materials

Equation of state (EOS) efforts at National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) national laboratories tend to focus heavily on metals, and rightly so given their obvious primacy in nuclear weapons. Our focus here, however, is on the EOS of 'soft' matter such as polymers and their derived foams, which present a number of challenges distinct from those of other material classes. This brief description will cover only one aspect of polymer EOS modeling: treatment of shock-driven decomposition. Here, these interesting (and sometimes neglected) materials exhibit a number of other challenging features— glass transitions, complex thermal behavior, response that is both viscous and elastic—each warranting additional discussions of their own.
