A study of shock‐loaded Armco iron has been made using a flash radiographic technique. Oblique shock waves were produced in iron samples by the collision of an explosively loaded driver. Details in the radiograph were compared qualitatively with the shock configuration to be expected from the Hugoniot curve of iron. The double shock structure of iron and the rarefaction shock were observed.
