A paper presents a proposal of identification of a degree of hazard the ships hull forced from underwater explosion.

A theoretical analysis was made of influence of changes of hull structure in vicinity of hull. Regarding the influence of black powder burn rates, a direct examination of underwater explosion data on large hexagonal grains that exhibit a slow burn rate (Hilliar, H W, “Experiments carried out on the pressure wave thrown out by submarine explosions”, Admiralty Experimental Station, Essex, UK, ) demonstrates the strong effect of.

The destruction of Ripple Rock, which was the tip of an underwater mountain and a navigation hazard in Discovery Passage (Seymour Narrows), British Columbia, was the world’s largest planned non-nuclear underwater twin-peaked summit was only 3 m (9 ft) underwater at low tide, which resulted in at least vessels damaged or sunk, and people drowned.

ARMY London, England CONTRACT NUMBER NM Professor Boris Gelfand. The effects of an underwater explosion on a tunnel buried below submerged ground were studied through a combination of physical model tests, utilizing a geotechnical centrifuge, and numerical model analyses, using an explicit dynamic hydrocode program.

Explosion Blast Response of Composites contains key information on the effects of explosions, shock waves, and detonation products (e.g. fragments, shrapnel) on the deformation and damage to composites. The book considers the blast response of laminates and sandwich composites, along with blast mitigation of composites (including coating systems and energy absorbing materials).

Besides the shock wave load and the gas bubble pulse load, cavitation effect has a significant influence on the ships subjected to underwater explosion. The goal of this research is to investigate the cavitation effect on the response of ship section using acoustic-structural : Chen Ying-yu, Xiongliang Yao, Xiao Wei, Liu Xiang-dong.

This work compares experimental and numerical results concerning the elastic dynamic response of air-backed plate to underwater explosion. Experiments were performed in a centrifuge, both the shock loadings and structure responses were tested, and the bubble oscillation considering centrifugal force was predicted with Geer and Hunter model.

The experimental and numerical results illustrates Cited by: 1. Research on dynamic response of explosion containment vessels In order to research the underwater blasting technology, we often use explosion vessel to do some experiment, which can simulate the explosion experiment of different depth of the water environment by changing the water pressure.
