Visitor Seminar: “Developing Advanced Solid Propellants and Explosives – Modeling Condensed Phase Materials in Shock-Induced Extreme Conditions”

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Navigation

Abstract:

Explosives, pyrotechnics, propellants, and fuels are typical classes of energetic materials. These materials have a high amount of stored chemical energy that can be released exothermically. Modeling such materials requires the robust predictions of mechanical-thermochemical material behaviors for initiating reaction and maximizing designated outputs. This talk describes a theoretical continuum framework for modeling energetic materials including how equations of state and chemical kinetics can be improved, and modeling solid phase materials in hydrodynamics system.
