Sound velocities along the release path of an aluminum alloy were measured. Shear modulus at shock compression covering a pressure region of 20–100 GPa and the effective shear modulus along the quasi-elastic release paths were determined. New constitutive equations to characterize the shock loading and quasi-elastic unloading processes were proposed. Calculations coupled with these new constitutive relations very well reproduced the particles velocity wave profiles of this study and those of 6061-T6 Al alloy reported by Asay et al.
