Title:A Discrete Eulerian Model for Spherical Wave Propagation in Compressible Media
Author(s):Faccioli, Ezio; Ang, A.H-S.
Theory of underground nuclear explosions
Abstract:A rapidly increasing interest in the effects of high-energy underground explosions has stimulated in recent years a considerable number of investigations devoted to the prediction of ground motions in the neighborhood of a blast source. In many instances this has led to the development of computer codes capable of describing, by means of discrete numerical techniques, the propagation of the pressure waves generated by the blast in the surrounding medium. The problem posed is of considerable mathematical complexity, as it can be easily realized through a brief review of the phenomena observed in connection with an underground atomic burst.
