Anelastic release from the shock-compressed state is analyzed in terms of internal self stresses acting on dislocation pile-ups and pinned dislocation loops. Reverse anelastic deformation occurs immediately upon release due to these internal stresses and is responsible for departure from ideal elastic-plastic unloading wave behavior : anelastic release is commonly observed in all shock-loaded metals. The rate at which this readjustment of internal stress occurs is determined by the viscous drag coefficient in the shock-compressed state and has important consequences regarding determination of elastic moduli from unloading wave data.
