Abstract: In this paper, the smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) is applied to simulate the high explosive (HE) explosion which consists of detonation and dispersion process. The combination of meshless and Lagrangian nature inherent in the SPH methodology avoids the disadvantages of traditional numerical methods in treating large deformations, large inhomogeneities and tracing free surfaces in the extremely transient explosion process. Four numerical examples are presented with comparisons from different sources. The presented numerical examples involve in various HE explosion scenarios of arbitrary charge shape and different detonation orientations. The simulation results show that the presented SPH methodology can give good prediction for both the magnitude and form of the detonation wave as well as the pressure transient in the explosion process. Major physics of the HE explosion can be well captured in the simulation. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
