Tungsten carbide powder with 3. 5 μ m average particle diameter was shocked by the indirect method to produce a quasi-isentropic plane compression wave normal to the cylinder axis. Recovered specimens showed the evidence of melt and possible evaporation . For the lower temperature specimen, compacted structure possibly sintered through melt was observed and for the high temperature shock specimen newly formed triangular plates were observed.
