The experimental facility is described in debth in V.S. Deshpande, A. Heaver, N.A. Fleck, An underwater shock simulator. Royal Society of London Proceedings Series A, 462(2067):1021-1041, 2006.

Fluid

- Pressure wave generated by solving equation of motion for piston during entire fluid-structure simulation. Piston mass: 238g. The initial velocity v0 is varied to create different loading conditions with initial pressure p0.
- Full water shock tube of 1.3m length, 64mm diameter considered in fluid. 1d simulations used to provide proper flow field for coupled 3d simulations.
- Modeling of water with stiffened gas equation of state with
- Multi-dimensional 2nd order upwind finite volume scheme, negative pressures from cavitation avoided by energy correction
- AMR base level: 350x20x20, 2 additional levels, refinement factor 2,2.
- Approx. 1.2M cells used in fluid on average instead of 9M (uniform)
- An unsigned distance function is used to allow the simulation of the rupture event.

Solid with SFC

- Copper plate of 0.25mm, J2 plasticity model with hardening, rate sensitivity, and thermal softening, cohesive interface model
- Solid mesh: 4675 nodes, 8896 elements
- 12 nodes 3.4 GHz Intel Xeon dual processor, Gigabit ethernet network, ca. 800h CPU to t=1ms
- Source codes: [fluid codes] [solid codes]

- For p0=34MPa the shell solver with fracture model approximately reproduces the results of the plastic simulation.
