Description: The SHARP code designed to handle calculations of hydrodynamic motion in one-dimensional form, including provision for the disruption of the sample by spallation, is described. The code was prepared by means of the IBM logical coding scheme, FORTRAN. Generation of SHARP requires a set of initial conditions which define an established pressure pulse in the front portion of the sample. The code was developed to investigate the motion of the pressure pulse and the corresponding effects. The input for the code consists of the location and velocity of zone boundaries, values of the internal energy and relative volumes of active zones, the density of the material, and the constants required to establish the equation of state.
