Abstract

The authors describe their work on developing models of steam explosion phenomena, with particular emphasis on a transient, two-dimensional, three-component model of coarse mixing. Their results illustrate the effect of varying melt composition and changing initial conditions on the amount of the coarse detonations reveals the need to consider transient effects, rather than assuming a steady Chapman-Jouguet detonation.
