MultiMaterial Closure Model for HighOrder Finite Element Lagrangian Hydrodynamics
Abstract
We present a new closure model for single fluid, multimaterial Lagrangian hydrodynamics and its application to highorder finite element discretizations of these equations [1]. The model is general with respect to the number of materials, dimension and space and time discretizations. Knowledge about exact material interfaces is not required. Material indicator functions are evolved by a closure computation at each quadrature point of mixed cells, which can be viewed as a highorder variational generalization of the method of Tipton [2]. This computation is defined by the notion of partial noninstantaneous pressure equilibration, while the full pressure equilibration is achieved by both the closure model and the hydrodynamic motion. Exchange of internal energy between materials is derived through entropy considerations, that is, every material produces positive entropy, and the total entropy production is maximized in compression and minimized in expansion. Results are presented for standard onedimensional twomaterial problems, followed by twodimensional and threedimensional multimaterial highvelocity impact arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian calculations. Published 2016. This article is a U.S. Government work and is in the public domain in the USA.
