## J-W-L Parameters for High Explosives

Hi !!! all

I really struglling to get the JWL and Lee Traver EOS parameters for RDX .

If anybody can help seriously I will be highly obliged. Atlest the EOS parameters of Comp-A5 or PBX 9604 having higher percentage of RDX (98.5 % and 96% respectively)  will  be sufficient.

## Hugoniot equation

The Rankine-Hugoniot equation governs the behaviour of shock waves (node/1245#comment-2327) normal to the oncoming flow.

## Equations of State

An equation of state is a formula describing the interconnection between various macroscopically measurable properties of a system.

In physics and thermodynamics, an equation of state is a relation between state variables. More specifically, an equation of state is a thermodynamic equation describing the state of matter under a given set of physical conditions. It is a constitutive equation which provides a mathematical relationship between two or more state functions associated with the matter, such as its temperature, pressure, volume, or internal energy. Equations of state are useful in describing the properties of fluids, mixtures of fluids, solids, and even the interior of stars.

## modern explosion science and engineering

This blog focuses on the behaviors of energetic materials (such as solid rocket propellants, high explosives), shock waves,  and explosions. And also on the protections, from the design of protecting materials and structures.
