Abstract:

The problem of simulating fluid motion in open containers that are subjected to the effects of nuclear weapons is examined in detail. Results obtained from experiments included on the Mixed Company III high explosive test and laboratory shake-table tests are analyzed with the aid of supporting theoretical analysis. A fluid loss prediction technique is developed and applied to configurations of interest.
