Computational analysis of the physics of electrically-enhanced, high velocity impact initiation of volumetric explosives
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
NumerEx will provide computational support to on-going Air Force efforts to develop the means to robustly initiate and focus volumetric blast weapons, such as thermobarics and fuel-air mixtures, via electrified shape charge jets . Based on detailed multi-dimensional first-principle calculation, NumerEx will validate the model against experimental data, design a suitable proof-of-principle experiment to demonstrate focused blast effects, and develop an assessment of potential issues facing focused blast technology as it transitions from basic research to development, test, and evaluation.
