There is plenty of experimental data on high-pressure phase transformations in various materials. Variations in materials characteristics (for example, equilibrium density and bulk modulus), while the crystalline structure remains unchanged, are indicative of energy variations in outer-shell electrons of solid atoms. In experiments with crystalline structure variations, the dependence of pressure on density in some cases can be described by the same curve, the parameters of which are independent of the crystalline structure. Examples of such transformations in some materials at static compression and in shock-wave experiments are given.
