Funding: CSM group receives $1.1M aimed at military vehicle safety

Stills from YouTube video of buried roadside explosive

As one of four institutions collaborating with the University of Colorado — Boulder,  the CSM group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah, will be developing constitutive models for soils, as well as full-scale simulation capabilities in Uintah to predict blast and ejecta from shallow buried explosives (such as roadside improvised explosive devices).  The $1.1M slated for CSM work presumes the project will last 5 years.  For more information, see the University of Colorado’s press release.

  1. According to wave propagation in soil models, is it beneficial to use meshfree methods or isogeometric analysis?

    Actually, I utilized NEM (Natural Element Method) in solving seepage problems (diffusion issues) and found out good results. But I am confused about wave propagation problems. I was wondering if you could guide me

    Thank you
