Ali,

Actually, MSST and NPHug are closely related. In both cases, the Hamiltonian equations of motion are augmented with extra equations that describe the exchange of energy and volume with external reservoirs, so that the final average temperature, stress, and density satisfy the Rankine-Hugoniot energy conservation equation at some compressed state. In the case of NPhug, the compressed state is defined by the final pressure, while the rate of compression and shock heating are controlled by pdamp and tdamp. In the case of MSST, the compressed state is defined by the shock velocity, while the rate of compression and shock heating are both controlled by the value of q.
