Focus Area 3: Characterize and Predict Physical/Chemical Effects in Turbulent Environments


  • Obtain archival data from canonical experiments for simulants,
  • Utilize a state-of-art simulation code with data from canonical experiments for turbulent mixing and combustion environment and use reduced reaction kinetics obtained with UQ assessment in a parallel kinetics project, and
  • Exercise the simulation model to study more realistic post detonation mixing and environment.

Long-term Strategy: Combine a unique experimental characterization capability with an accurate, numerical multi-scale simulation approach for model development, validation, and uncertainty quantification.
