Sand and Mine Response Modeling

  title={Sand and Mine Response Modeling},
  author={Daniel T. Tam},
The goal of the sand modeling effort is to provide a validated predictive capability for the propagation of shock waves through the surf zone (SZ) environment of water, sand, and entrained air. Since the details of the physics are included in the model, this tool is also capable of modeling the response of the threat mine structure to the shock wave. Previous SZ explosive mine countermeasures (MCM) systems experimental data have indicated that explosive shock waves were highly attenuated when… CONTINUE READING
