A description of the development and use of equations of state for solids. A method is described for combining the measurable physical properties of a material with the calculated theoretical properties under extreme conditions of temperature and pressure to give a complete working description for a hydrodynamic calculation. This is illustrated with results for a common rock material (basalt).
