A study of the effect of pressure on the compressibility of metals is important for checking the theories related to the equation of State and lattice anharmonicity as well as those based on interatomic interactions. In the past, several measurements of the effect of pressure on the compressibility of aluminum were carried out as part of a more general program of measurement of the pressure effect on the elastic constants of solids. These measurements were mostly performed by the ultrasonic pulse-echo technique and generally restricted to room temperature. At lower temperatures the only reported measurement of the pressure dependence of the compressibility of Al was that of Ho and Ruoff [1].
