The mean-field potential approach was used for the reduction of shock-wave data. The thermal volume expansion of the principal Hugoniot relative to the 300 K isotherm was also calculated by using the same approach. The reduced results obtained from the excellent agreement between such shock-reduced data and the normal standards or empirical reductions, showed that it could be used as pressure standards for the widely employed static diamond-anvil-cell experiments.
