Abstract:

The ultimate goal is to develop a robust and accurate physics-based hydrodynamics model for predicting water entry and subsequent drop of a mine-shaped three-dimensional body. The key capability of the model is to provide an input of the velocity and motion of a near-bottom mine for mine burial predictions. Such a deterministic model is an essential building block in the development of stochastic models for mine burial predictions.
