Purely theoretical predictions are made of the states achieved by the passage of stable shocks through porous aluminum. This is done by combining a theoretical equation of state and a theoretical description of the compaction process with the current theory of shock propagation in porous materials. The results show very good agreement between theory and experiment, adding further justification to the presently accepted theory of shocked porous substances.
