Numerical Analysis of Shock Wave Propagation Law of Internal Gas Explosion
The purpose of this paper is to research on shock wave propagation law of internal gas explosion. The multi-material Eulerian and Lagrangian coupling algorithm was adopt. Using ANSYS/LS-DYNA dynamic analysis software to build frame structure, air and gas explosion models. Multiple ALE elements for simulating air and gas explosion material the analysis of blast shock wave propagation in a three-story steel frame structure and the characteristics of explosion pressure using fluid-structure coupling method are carried out. The conclusions show that fluid-structure coupling method can well simulated shock wave propagation of internal gas explosion, and the pressure peak of blast shock wave increased with the increasing of the blast air initial energy. Locality is the characteristic of explosion pressure in sealed space, and the pressure pass weakly when it propagates in solid.
