Dynamic Jet Formation from Mitigation Materials
This work has been carried out to improve the methodology and understanding of mitigating against the effects of large explosive charges. This research specifically focuses on the physical processes involved in the expansion of granular materials. This is an area which has been investigated empirically in the past , but still lacks a thorough understanding. Hydrocode calculations are unable to predict the inhomogeneous expansion seen in experiments  and thus little confidence can be held in their ability to accurately predict the mitigating mechanisms.
