Title: Pretest predictions of surface strain and fluid pressures in mercury targets undergoing thermal shock

Abstract

The authors provide a perspective overview of pretest modeling and analysis work related to thermal shock effects in spallation neutron source targets that were designed for conducting thermal shock experiments at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE). Data to be derived are to be used for benchmarking computational tools as well as to assess the efficacy of optical gauges for monitoring dynamic fluid pressures and phenomena such as the onset of cavitation.
