The Impact-Induced Triggering of Hot Spots in Energetic/Explosive Materials Part 3: An Elliptic Air-Filled Inclusion Within an Unbounded Isotropic Plane

Report No. ARL-TR-4966
Authors: Michael Grinfeld
Date/Pages: September 2009; 30 pages
Abstract: In solid explosive materials, the holes filled with gas can portray explosion-triggering hot spots. We explore the form factor on the generation of the hot spots. As a result, we consider the Eshelby approach in the two-dimensional problem of determining the thermoelastic field of an elastic plane weakened by an elliptic hole and the field with liquid or gaseous media.
