Tillotson equation

(Tillotson equation of state, Tillotson EoS)
(equation of state for high speed impacts)

The Tillotson equation (or Tillotson equation of state or Tillotson EoS) is an equation of state (relating pressure, volume, and temperature) for the shock of very high speed impacts of metals. Astrophysics uses it for modeling impacts within the solar system.
