Optimal Design of Shock Compaction Device


Article Preview

In order to achieve an optimal design of shock compaction device, various designs of parts are attempted. For the height of water container that creates an underwater shock wave and a reflected wave, a characteristic of underwater shock wave is evaluated by means of numerical analysis. It is found that the underwater shock wave and the reflected wave became one wave with higher shock pressure in the case of water container (height 21.5 mm). Also, the evaluation for a powder container is experimentally tried in consideration of reuse.
