Studies of Fuel-Air Mixture Explosion Characteristics and Structure Fracture and Damage in Large-Scale Metal Oil Storage Tank
The fuel-air mixture explosion incidents in the large-scale metal oil storage tank are frequent occurrence and rapidly extend because of the tank structure being fractured and damaged by the fuel-air mixture explosion. In this paper, the simulation experiment and numerical simulation has been carried out for the fuel-air mixture explosion in the large-scale metal storage tank. The shock waves characteristic of the explosive pressure has been studied and discussed. The fracture and damage effects caused by the shock waves characteristic to the tank structure has been analyzed and discussed too.
