Abstract Two samples of jacketed Microtherm1HT were hydrostatically pressurized to maximum pressures of 29,000 psi to evaluate both pressure-volume response and change in bulk modulus as a function of density. During testing, each of the two samples exhibited large irreversible compactive volumetric strains with only small increases in pressure; however at volumetric strains of approximately 50%, the MicrothermHT stiffened noticeably at ever increasing rates. At the maximum pressure of 29,000 psi, the volumetric strains for both samples were approximately 70%. Bulk modulus, as determined from hydrostatic unload/reload loops, increased by more than two-orders of magnitude (from about 4500 psi to over 500,000 psi) from an initial material density of approx. 0.3 g/cc to a final density of approx. 1.1 g/cc. An empirical fit to the density vs. bulk modulus data is K = 492769n(4.6548), where K is the bulk modulus in psi, and n is the material density in g/cm3. The porosity decreased from 88% to approx. 20% indicating that much higher pressures would be required to compact the material fully.
