A nonlinear anisotropic continuum framework for describing the thermoelastic-plastic response of single crystals shocked along arbitrary orientations has been developed. Our modeling approach incorporates nonlinear elasticity, crystal plasticity, and thermodynamic consistency within an incremental tensor formulation. Crystal plasticity was incorporated by considering dislocation motion along specified slip planes. The theoretical developments presented here are sufficiently general to also accommodate other types of inelastic deformation mechanisms. As representative applications of the theoretical developments, numerical simulations of shock wave propagation in lithium fluoride (LiF) and copper single crystals are presented and compared to wave profile data for several crystal orientations. Simulations of shock wave propagation along low-symmetry directions, where data are not available, are also presented to examine the propagation of quasilongitudinal and quasishear waves in crystals undergoing elastic-plastic deformation. Temperature calculations for the shocked single crystals are discussed.
