Title

Detonation Wave Propagation and Interaction with Transportation Infrastructure

Abstract

Propagation of the blast wave caused by hydrogen-air detonation, and the blast wave interaction with a transportation infrastructure are studied. A cylindrical blast wave and a planar blast wave are investigated. RHT-35MPA concrete is the material used for a wall to model the interaction. The blast wave-structure interaction shows that the structure can fail in different modes depending on the material properties. Concrete has failure features quite distinct from metals such as steel and aluminum.
