Abstract:

A PROJECT IS PROPOSED WHERE EXISTING MODELS ARE USED TO PREDICT THE EFFECT OF MULTIPLE BURST AIRSLAP ON HARDENED SILOS. A SMALL NUMER OF THREAT/TARGET CONFIGURATIONS WILL BE SELECTED AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THOSE OF GREATEST INTEREST OR AS BOUNDING THE AIRSLAP PROBLEM. THE MODELS WILL BE EVALUATED AND MATCHED TO THE THREAT/TARGET CASES FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE. THE PREDICTIONS WILL BE TABULATED AS A REFERENCE. FOR SOME CASES, SEVERAL MODELS WILL BE APPLIED, AND THE PREDICTIONS COMPARED AS AN EVALUATION OF THE MODEL PERFORMANCE. FINALLY MODIFIED VALUES FOR THE GEOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE LOCAL GEOLOGY WILL BE USED TO SIMULATE THE EFFECT OF A FIRST ATTACK. A SECOND STRIKE THREAT WILL THEN BE RUN FOR THE CASES, TO OBTAIN PREDICTIONS OF THE IMPACT OF THE ALTERED GEOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES ON THE SECOND STRIKE. A PARAMETRIC SET OF VALUES OF THE GEOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES WILL BE INPUT TO PUT BOUNDS ON THE PERCEIVED PROBLEM. IN ADDITION, THE USE OF VELOCITY INVERSION (A MATHEMATICAL TECHNIQUE) TO OBTAIN ACTUAL VALUES OF GEOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES FROM ANALYSIS OF SEISMIC DATA OF NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE SIMULATIONS OF NUCLEAR TESTS WILL BE EXPLORED. AVAILABLE DATA WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND EXAMINED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING THIS TECHNOLOGY IN A NEW WAY.
