  • Ruderman, Gregory Allen (1998)
    The model is then simplified to a set of three model problems: the constant-volume thermal explosion, one-dimensional shear loading, and one dimensional longitudinal loading. These model problems were solved numerically ...

  • Ford, David Kevin (1997)
    Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, there arises a closure difficulty: the reduced set of physically admissible measures is still large. In this thesis a particular subclass of admissible measures is studied using the ...

  • Kuznetsov, Igor R. (2005)
    The problem of efficiently computing the stable burn-back of a solid rocket motor when the motor is in the quasi-steady burning regime of operation is considered. Through the use of a straightforward two-timing multi-scale ...

  • Wescott, Bradley L. (2005)
    A recently proposed higher order theory including shock acceleration effects for detonation shock dynamics (DSD) is evaluated for PBX-9502. Comparisons of detonation diffraction in PBX-9502 are made between experiment, ...

  • Kasimov, Aslan R. (2004)
    Linear stability properties and nonlinear dynamics of self-sustained detonations is investigated by means of asymptotic analysis and numerical simulations. The normal-mode linear stability analysis is carried out for gaseous ...

  • Yoh, Jack Jai-Ick (2001)
    Because the framework in which the simulation tool is developed is quite general, we expect a wide application of our model to many challenging multi-material physics problems.

  • Yoo, Sunhee (2003)
    A new equation of state (EOS) for a reactive, non-ideal explosive was developed to be used in the explosive applications. The new EOS was based on the earlier work of W. C. Davis, who developed equations of state for the ...
