Abstract

The primary objective for the proposed effort is to develop innovative fast-running models (FRMs) that are based on data generated by High-Fidelity Physics-Based (HFPB) models; these FRMs are to predict the damage, responses, and subsequent residual strength of walls and slabs composed of UHPC or HPC materials of the kind that would be used in hardened bunkers. Of particular interest is to create an FRM that can predict the effects of multiple hits on such slab and wall components. The FRMs are to provide a reliable and efficient way to compute response metrics, especially the accumulated response caused by multiple hit events involving cased munitions. The intent is to create FRMs that are suitable for inclusion in targeting/assessment codes such as the IMEA (Integrated Munitions Effectiveness Assessment) code.
