The Influence of a Detonating Layer on Craters and Shock Wave Transmission from Underground Explosions.
AIR FORCE INST OF TECH WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
A Lagrangian, elastic, plastic and hydrodynamic computer code, named HEMP, was used to simulate the influence of a 1-meter thick concrete detonation layer on the shock wave transfer and crater size created by a 2000 pound general purpose G.P. bomb, buried 2 meters under the ground surface. The main conclusion is that the influence is very small. Author
