Blast type shock wave phenomena simulated using regularized smoothed particle hydrodynamics
The numerical method RSPH is used to simulate shock reflection phenomena. In the first case we look at a shock colliding with a complex wedge configuration, whereas in the second case, the wedge is replaced by a square box. Our numerical results are found to be in good agreement with published experimental data. Reflection pattern and the pressure force on the box is studied for both short and long duration shock waves. The results demonstrate the capabilites of RSPH to handle shock reflection phenomena.
