A key input parameter to Detonation Shock Dynamics models is the angle that the propagating detonation wave makes with the charge edge. This is commonly referred to as the boundary angle, and is a property of the explosive/confiner material combination. Such angles can be determined: (i) experimentally from measured detonation wave-shapes, (ii) theoretically, or (iii) via hydrocode simulations using a reactive burn model. Of these approaches: (i) is difficult because of resolution, (ii) breaks… CONTINUE READING
