Abstract:

The FY90 Advanced Warhead Concepts effort has produced an advanced thermodynamic equation of state Jones-Wilkens-Lee-Baker JWLB for high explosives detonation. JWLB is suitable for overdriven detonation and material acceleration applications. It has been implemented into the dynamic finite element programs SYNA2D and DYNA3D and parameterized for octol 7525. Calculated and experimental results are compared.
