## Model Description

A OFHC copper cylinder (1.53cm diameter, 0.26cm thickness, 30.5cm height) is filled with an explosive (TNT). Detonation is initiated at the bottom of the explosive. Radial expansion is measured at a length of 8*D cm. With an Euler formulation, the air has to be modeled to measure radial expansion.

Units: cm, $\mu $s, g, Mbar

### Model Method

A 3D mesh is made of brick elements. The element size for the copper cylinder is approximately of 0.035 cm x 0.035 cm x 0.035 cm.

The mesh is dragged along the z direction (z = 30.5 cm). It is important to have no discontinuity in element volume in order to ensure a good propagation of detonation wave and shock wave.

`q`

_{a}=1.1 and

`q`

_{b}=0.05. These values must be set to 0 for the Lagrange formulation.

`I`_{solid}is set to 0 for TNT and copper solid properties.

## Results

### Curves and Animations

### Conclusion

Good correlation between experimental and simulation results. A thinner meshing could improve the correlation between simulation and experimental curves.
