Hugoniot properties of dry Yorkshire sandstone up to 8 GPa.
American Institute of Physics Conference Proceedings, 845(1) pp. 1488–1491.
A series of plate impact experiments has been performed to assess the dynamic behaviour of dry Yorkshire sandstone up to 8 GPa. Standard manganin gauges were inserted between samples in order to determine the principal Hugoniot curve. A VISAR system was used to measure the free surface velocity of the target. This work is in part of a research programme to understand the survivability of microbial life under impact and the creation of new habitats for microbial life as a function of shock processing of sandstone.
