Description

The dynamic behavior of a copper tube containing high explosive PBX 9502 is studied. The detonation of the explosive propagating along the axis drives the copper tube radially outward. A multi-process reactive model is used to simulate the explosive burn behavior in an Eulerian hydrodynamic code. In addition,an adaptive mesh refinement technique is featured in controlling the computational mesh size as the detonation wave moves in and out of a region. Comparison with experiments is made to show the capability of the new hydrocode.
