Title Mixture Model for Determination of Shock Equation of State.
Publication Date Jul 2012
Media Count 17p
Personal Author J. L. Jordan M. R. Baer
Abstract Simple mixture models for the prediction of shock equations of state (Hugoniot) are a necessary tool for characterization of multiple composites. A mixture model for determining the shock equation of state of composite materials is presented. The model is completely flexible allowing for multiple (>2) components. Additionally, error propagation analysis for the two component mixture model has been accomplished. The model predicts the equation of state to 5%-15% of the experimental data, which is comparable to variations realized in meso-scale modeling of similar materials.
