Abstract:

A physical model of the explosive comminution process in liquids is presented. The key feature of the model involves the development of flaws in the liquid under the action of large explosively generated stresses. It is at these flaws that the material fails via a process termed liquid fracture. Guided by molecular dynamics MO studies, a highly simplified picture is relatively successful in yielding semiquantitative agreement with experimental data. Author
