Abstract:

This effort modeled two types of nuclear airblast simulators, the High Explosive Simulation Technique HEST and the Dynamic Airblast Simulator DABS, with hydrodynamic Computer Codes. One dimensional similarity solutions, Modified 1-D, and 2-D calculations are described. High explosive burn routines and energy deposition schemes are described. For the HEST, explosive distribution and cavity configurations were studied. For the DABS, energy deposition, calculational cell size, and a preliminary look at shock-target interactions are presented. Author
