The goal of this task is to develop a methodology by which the geometry of a channel in the surf zone as produced by a line of explosive charges may be predicted. To achieve this goal, an NRL incompressible hydrocode is required which models the excavation by bubble expansion. If necessary, the initial conditions produced by shock wave effects could be provided by a compressible code. This incompressible code would then be developed and applied, in combination with the results of smallscale tests conducted by the University of Maryland and some larger scale tests, which would then validate and provide an empirical basis for a predictive methodology. The predictive methodology is being developed by NSWCIND.
