A two-dimensional energy-based model of fragmentation of rapidly expanding cylinder under plane strain conditions is proposed. The model allows us to estimate the average fragment length and the number of fragments produced by ductile fracture of the cylinder. Comparison of obtained results with published experimental data on the fragmentation of the aluminum rings and cylinders shows that they are in good agreement. 

Estimate of the number of fragments formed during the rapid radial expansion of a ring

In recent paper (Goloveshkin and Myagkov 2014) we proposed a two-dimensional energy-based model of fragmentation of rapidly expanding cylinder under plane strain conditions. The model allowed one to

Fragmentation model of a rapidly expanding ring with arbitrary cross-section

A model has been proposed to estimate the average number of fragments produced by ductile fracture of a rapidly expanding ring with arbitrary cross-section. The model uses a minimum number of

Experimental study of the fragmentation characteristics of brittle rocks by the effect of a freefall round hammer

The dynamic fragmentation of brittle rocks (slate, granite, marble and limestone) under low-velocity impact was investigated using freefall round hammer experiments. A three-parameter generalized

Fragmentation of metal rings by electromagnetic loading

A method is described for performing fragmentation studies on rapidly expanding metal rings. A fast-discharge capacitor system generates magnetic forces which accelerate the rings to maximum radial

Strain‐energy effects on dynamic fragmentation

Grady’s model of the dynamic fragmentation process, in which the average fragment size is determined by balancing the local kinetic energy and the surface energy, is modified to include the stored

Fragmentation by molecular dynamics: The microscopic "big bang"

This work proposes and test a new molecular-dynamics method to study fragmentation of condensed matter under homogeneous adiabatic expansion and finds that a simple continuum model based on energy balance gives a reasonably good estimate of the average fragment mass.

Molecular dynamics of two- and three-dimensional liquids undergoing a homogeneous adiabatic expansion provides a direct numerical simulation of the atomization process and indicates that both the mean and the maximum droplet size have a power-law dependence upon the expansion rate.

On the dynamics of localization and fragmentation-IV. Expansion of Al 6061-O tubes

In this series of papers, we investigate the mechanics and physics of localization and fragmentation in ductile materials. The behavior of ductile metals at strain rates of about 4,000–15,000 per

Phase transition in liquid drop fragmentation.

It is argued that the observed transition is not percolative, and the concept of dominance is introduced in order to characterize it, and it is found to go to zero sharply at the transition.
