Abstract
A METHOD FOR THE EVALUATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF EXPLOSIVE MATERIAL CHARACTERIZATION IS PROPOSED. DAMAGE OF A RIGID RUNWAY CONCRETE SLAB WILL BE OPTIMIZED FOR VARIOUS EXPLOSIVE ENERGY RELEASE RATES. THE STEPS FOR THE PROGRAM ARE: 1) COLLECTION AND EVALUATION OF RUNWAY TEST DAMAGE RESULTS, 2) PRELIMINARY LITERATURE SEARCH FOR APPROPRIATE HYPERGOLIC ENERGY RELEASE RATE, 3) NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF EXPLOSIVES PLACED BELOW A RUNWAY IN AN ATTEMPT TO REPRODUCE THE TEST DATA, 4) NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF VARIOUS EXPLOSIVES RELEASE CHARACTERISTICS, AND 5) COMPARISONS OF THE RESULTS OF THE SECOND AND THIRD STEPS TO OPTIMIZE DAMAGE STATES.
