Modeling and Simulation of Underwater Shock Problems Using a Coupled Lagrangian—Eulerian Analysis Approach

Revised15 Jan 1995
Accepted04 Sep 1996


The application of coupled Lagrangian—Eulerian analysis to various types of underwater shock problems was investigated, with the verification and validation of this analysis approach in mind. Analyses were conducted for a simple TNT detonation problem and for the classical problems of an infinite cylindrical shell and a spherical shell loaded by a plane acoustic step wave. The advantages, disadvantages, and limitations of this approach are identified and discussed.
