Abstract

The disruption of celestial body such as meteoroids, cometary fragments and asteroids is investigated by mathematical methods. The gas dynamic forces, inertial force and radiation act on the body. The main results of the paper is related to the creation of stress-strain and phase transition models and simulation of the celestial body fracture and breaking up during its flight in an atmosphere.

Key words
