Equations of state of SiO/sub 2/ and H/sub 2/O mixtures

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Equations of state (EOS) of silicon dioxide--water mixutes were developed to allow realistic computer simulations of surface and underground nuclear explosions of different yields to be conducted. Beacuse the amount of water contained in silicate rocks affects the size of craters and cavities formed by nuclear explosions, this factor must therefore be included in calculations of the EOS data of silicon cioxide--water mixtures. EOS were tabulated for mixtures containing three different concentrations of water at densities between 10/sup -5/ and 140 Mg/m/sup 3/ and temperatures between 0.025 and 25,000 eV. The calculations were performed by using an improved mixture model ... continued below

Description

Equations of state (EOS) of silicon dioxide--water mixutes were developed to allow realistic computer simulations of surface and underground nuclear explosions of different yields to be conducted. Beacuse the amount of water contained in silicate rocks affects the size of craters and cavities formed by nuclear explosions, this factor must therefore be included in calculations of the EOS data of silicon cioxide--water mixtures. EOS were tabulated for mixtures containing three different concentrations of water at densities between 10/sup -5/ and 140 Mg/m/sup 3/ and temperatures between 0.025 and 25,000 eV. The calculations were performed by using an improved mixture model based on earlier EOS data of silicon dioxide and water. The improved model makes allowances for a nonequilibrium dynamic effect that occurs more slowly than does the polymorphic phase change of silicate rocks. These data were used in an attempt to simulate the behavior of water-containing rocks during nuclear explosions. 17 figures, and 7 tables.
