Abstract:

OPTICAL EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS, PARTICULARLY MULTIBURST INTERACTIONS AND INFRARED STRUCTURE DUE TO FIREBALL TURBULENCE, ARE OF CURRENT INTEREST. THE BEAU GESTE EXPERIMENT DATA BASE IS UNIQUE IN INCLUDING HOTWIRE ANEMOMETRY, IR VIDEO RECORD, AND VISIBLE LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS FOR SINGLE AND MULTIPLE DETONATIONS. PRI PROPOSES TO DIGITIZE SELECTED IR, VISIBLE AND ANEMOMETRY DATA, OBTAIN POWER SPECTRAL DENSITIES (PSDS) AND PROBABILITY DENSITY FUNCTIONS (PDFS), AND ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TURBULENCE STRUCTURE AND OBSERVED OPTICAL STRUCTURE. SCALING PROCEDURES WILL BE DEVELOPED, AND THE FEASIBILITY OF EXTENDING THE RELATIONSHIPS FROM SMALL-SCALE SIMULATIONS TO NUCLEAR DETONATIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED.
