Shock Hugoniot calculations are carried out for lead (Pb) using both solid and liquid state theories. The Hugoniots in solid and liquid cases are in mutual agreement within the experimental uncertainties. However, the shock temperatures are quite different as computed from solid and liquid state theories. This fact can perhaps be used to detect melting along the shock Hugoniot provided the shock temperatures are accurately measured.
