Interaction of a Planar Shock with a Dense Field of Particles
Understanding the particle-particle and shock-particle interactions that occur in dense gas-solid flows is limited by a lack of knowledge of the underlying phenomena. Gas-solid flows are characterized by the particle volume fraction. ϕ p of the flow . For particle volume fractions less than about 0.1%, flow is considered dilute and the effects of particle collisions are negligible . For packed particles, where the .p is greater than about 50%, the flow regime is said to be granular. The dilute and granular regimes have been well studied, but conversely, a substantial knowledge gap exists for dense gas-solid flows, which have intermediate particle volume fractions of about 0.1 to 50%. This regime exists at microsecond time scales during blast-induced dispersal of material when the shocked particles are closely spaced.
