(Continue

?
The
dynamics
of
the
explosion bubble growth
and
collapse
due to the
under-waterdetonation
of
a
5.3-m--long
(17.5-ft)
tapered charge
containing
454
kg
(1000
lb)
of
TNT
are
examined calculationally.
The
burst
was
305
m
(1000
ft)
below
the sea surface
in
deep
water.
The
calculational method,using
a
coupledEulerian-Lagrangian finite-difference hydrodynamics computer
code,
was madecredible
by
successfullycalculating
the
explosionbubble dynamics
of
spherical
TNT
charges detonated
at
the same
depth
of
burst. (cont.)
