The new idea for estimating Hugoniot of the materials based on the formulation of a non steady flow of the shock wave propagation has been proposed. In general, though the Hugoniot measurement employs the shock wave with perfectly square waveform, a proposed method can be applied even for the decayed shock wave. This method can determine the relationship of the Hugoniot on particle velocity-shock velocity, and the local slope of the Hugoniot by using two profiles of the particle velocity.


Hugoniot, decayed shock wave, particle velocity, slope of the Hugoniot.
