Physical Modeling of Buried Explosion in Soils by Geotechnical Centrifuge

Funded by the Multidisciplinary University Research Initiatives (MURI) program by Office of Naval Research (ONR). Buried explosion is a complex phenomenon, involving high strain-rate soil dynamics, fluid dynamics, fractures, shocks and multi-scale physics. A comprehensive experimental program using geotechnical centrifuge modeling was conducted in conjunction with computational modeling using finite...
