Title: Application of MACH2 to explosive magnetic flux compression generators: Improvements in detonation modeling. Final report

Abstract

Dramatic improvements have been made to the detonation modeling capability recently incorporated into MACH2. These improvements significantly improve the flexibility of the detonation model, allow for accurate depiction of real explosives, and permit highly efficient modeling of long, coaxial generators. In this document, we will first describe these improvements in some detail. We will then discuss the calibration of the detonation model to two explosive materials, PBX9501 and PBXN110. Finally, we will demonstrate the code`s capability for modeling long, coaxial magnetocumulative generators.
