(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2000-10)An approach is presented for modeling the thermal expansion boundary layer in energetic materials such as solid propellants and explosives during their combustion. A thermodynamically consistent system of conservation laws ...
(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-01)In the design of explosive systems the generic problem that one must consider is the propagation of a well-developed detonation wave sweeping through an explosive charge with a complex shape. At a given instant of time the ...
(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-10)We investigate hydrodynamic instability of a steady planar detonation wave propagating in a circular tube to three-dimensional linear perturbations, using the normal mode approach. Spinning instability is identified and ...
(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-10)Condensed phase explosives used in conventional explosive systems have a charge size on the order of a meter or a sizable fraction of a meter. This paper addresses a range of issues required to scale down the size of ...
