Abstract:

This Technical Report is the product of a series of meetings held by the technical staff and consultants of The BDM Corporation at the request of, and in cooperation with, representatives of DARPA. The motivation for holding these meetings, and associated technical analyses, was DARPAs interest in large-scale computer calculations of the effects of strong shocks in solids. In addition to related topics, the meetings primarily addressed the subject of improving communication and collaboration between solid mechanics researchers whose principal interest is inelastic constitutive material characterization and numerical analysts whose principal interest is the development and practical use of large computer codes for complex defense related problems.
