Understanding the shock compression of geological materials is important for many applications, and is particularly important to the mining industry. During blast mining the response to shock loading determines the propagation speed and resulting fragmentation of the rock. The work presented will include the shock response of fully dense and porous geological materials. The response of fully dense geological material can be predicted from component crystal properties and molecular dynamics simulations. The shock response of porous geological materials can be described using shock compaction models.
