This report is the second in a series of reports discussing mitigation of blasts using water mists. The previous report described numerical simulations of a TNT blast. The present report has combined that numerical procedure with a two-continuum model for dispersed-phase calculations. The specific approach used for the dispersed-phase calculations is the sectional approach, and is described in this report along with a series of simulations conducted for validation, and also for the purpose of better understanding interactions between shock waves and particle-seeded gases.
