Abstract
The work covered in the report includes, in general terms, the following topics: (a) analytical and numerical studies for the quick and efficient recomputation and/or reproduction of blast-wave flow properties of chemical and nuclear explosions, for a variety of different uses (e.g., structural loading and response), (b) development of the random-choice method for computations of realistic nonstationary flows in blast-wave simulators with perforated plates or a perforated cone in the driver, and the generation of useful numerical results (e.g., to illustrate how well a blast wave can be produced in blast-wave simulators and also to provide guidance in the design of a blast-wave simulator for DRES), and (c) design an appropriate blast-wave simulator for DRES, one of modest size and cost that would fulfill some or possibly most of the DRES requirements.
