ALE3 D can model the detonation, deflagration, and convective burn processes associated with the energetic response to thermal and mechanical stimuli of both high explosives and propellants.
Rocket Motor Impact
NATO fragment impacting HPP rocket motor at 1.0 and 2.6 km/s. The PERMS (propellant energetic response to mechanical stimuli) model is used to predict the impact response of the propellant to the NATO fragment.
Modeling the convective burning of PBX-9501 as part of the HYDRA thermal explosion imaging experiments. Multi-velocity model coupled with chemistry enables simulations of the evolving deflagration of thermally-degraded material.
