Abstract:

C-HEMP is a two-dimensional finite-difference computer program for treating stress waves propagation, in either planar or axisymmetric flow, caused by impacts or explosive detonation. It was designed, implemented, and tested at SRI International under a three-year contract for the U.S. Army Ballistic Research Laboratory to develop a computational model for armor penetration. The manual for the C-HEMP stress wave propagation code consists of two volumes. This first volume contains the descriptions and derivations of the code. Keywords Two dimensional, Wave propagation code, Armor penetration, Explosive detonation, Computational model, Micromechanical model, Shear banding, Brittle fracture, Ductile fracture.
