    Excerpt: ... CRUSH CURVE MESSUREMENTS OF POROUS MATERIALS USED FOR LABORATORY IMPACT EXPERIMENTS Kensuke Hiraoka and Akiko M. Nakamura Graduate School of Science, Kobe University, Japan. @As the impact process is common in the solar system, it is important to understand the impact process of small bodies in order to study the origin and evolution of these bodies and the solar system. The scale of the impact process in the solar system is far larger than we can address in the laboratory directly. Therefore, numerical simulations oer an eective way to study the impact process of small bodies. However, numerical simulations require knowledge of the physical properties of the target material, and should reproduce the results of laboratory experiments. Therefore, laboratory studies of the physical properties of the target materials, and destruction experiments, are important for numerical simulations . @In numerical simulations of the collisional disruption of asteroids, a fracture model, the Grady-Kipp model, has been u ...

    Excerpt: ... PHYSICAL REVIEW E 71, 066201 2005 Bifurcations in reaction-diffusion systems in chaotic ows Shakti N. Menon and Georg A. Gottwald* School of Mathematics & Statistics, University of Sydney, New South Wales 2006, Australia Received 14 January 2005; published 2 June 2005 We study the behavior of reacting tracers in a chaotic ow. In particular, we look at an autocatalytic reaction and at a bistable system which are subjected to stirring by a chaotic ow. The impact of the chaotic advection is described by a one-dimensional phenomenological model. We use a nonperturbative technique to describe the behavior near a saddle node bifurcation. We also nd an approximation of the solution far away from the bifurcation point. The results are conrmed by numerical simulations and show good agreement. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.71.066201 I.

    Excerpt: ... Chapter 6 Numerical Simulations 6.1 Introduction Numerical simulations of limestone behavior under drained and undrained boundary conditions are presented in this chapter. The ability of the 14-parameter cap model to simulate the basic drained behavior of limestone is demonstrated by comparing calculated responses of hydrostatic, uniaxial strain, and triaxial compression loadings with measured or recommended limestone responses. In a similar manner, the ability of the finite element code to calculate the undrained behavior of limestone is demonstrated by comparing calculated responses of uniaxial strain loadings with recommended limestone responses. Simulation results are also presented to demonstrate the ability of the code to predict partially-saturated undrained material behavior. Finally, some example calculations are documented that demonstrate the utility of the finite element code in analyzing the stress and strain states of laboratory test specimens. 6.2 Salem Limestone The limestone simulated in th ...

We analyse the vortex dynamics during the nonlinear stage of the instability along with the structure of the vortex wake during the turbulent stage. These simulations enable the quantication of vorticity dynamics and their correlation with structures from dye visualization and the observations of circulation decay that have been reported in related experimental works.
