Abstract:

Computer predictions from the hydrodynamic code RIPPLE are given for the internal air flows generated in a room model, with and without an entrance baffle, when it is exposed to long duration blast waves. Flow parameters are predicted for the case of an assumed fully reflected wave. The parameters are given in both tabular and graphical form for cases where the outside over-pressures are 10 and 20 psi, before reflection. The results are applied to a full size room shelter.
