the sector of concern compression technology has an extended and wealthy heritage concerning contributions of mathematicians, physicists and engineers over nearly 200 years. the center of the 19th century used to be an extremely ac­ tive interval with the contributions of Riemann, Rankine and Hugoniot, between others. the center of the 20 th century observed one other raise in task re­ lated to surprise compression of condensed topic due to army applica­ tions. It was once additionally famous that surprise compression supplied a method of sub­ jecting solids and beverages to severe states of temperature and strain tough to accomplish via static ability. It has therefore turn into an instructional learn in its personal correct. The primary modem contributions to this technological know-how have been summarized within the landmark paper through Rice, McQueen and Walsh [Solid country Physics, Vol. 6, pp. 1-63, 1958]. As this box has persevered to mature, curiosity has elevated in tracing the early papers that experience served because the foundations of the sector. Cheret [Shock Compression of Condensed subject - 1989, Elsevier Sci. Pub. B. V. , pp 11-19, 1990) has contributed to this literature together with his evaluate of the lifetime of Hugoniot at the one-hundredth anniversary of the e-book of Hugoniot's vintage paper at the propagation of discontinuous waves in gases. This contribution brought on extra ancient research related to the precursors to Hugoniot.
