Description du sujet


The macroscopic modeling of the blast effects of aluminized explosives is currently treated with empirical models. These models lead to perfectible results. Improvements would require the introduction of identified physics at the mesoscopic scale. Initial work, carried out as part of a thesis, is underway in this area using LES (Large Eddy Simulation) of flows representative of that generated by the detonation of an explosive. The results obtained today show a need to progress in the modeling of aluminum combustion under conditions as close as possible to those encountered after the detonation of a solid explosive.


The proposed work is part of this process of progress in the modeling of aluminum combustion. More specifically, it relates to the design and implementation of elementary experiments. Another PhD Thesis, proposed in parallel, is related to the modeling and numerical simulation aspect of the experiments (performed in IMFT). The ultimate goal is to feed the macroscopic models of blast effects of aluminized explosives.
