  • Content Description: The PANDA code is used to construct tabular equations of state (EOS) for four metals-- beryllium, nickel, tungsten and gold. Each EOS includes melting, vaporization, and thermal electronic excitation. Separate EOS tables are constructed for the solid and fluid phases, and the PANDA phase transition model is used to construct a multiphase EOS table for each metal. These new EOS tables are available for use with the CTH code and other hydrocodes that access the CTH database.
