Abstract

The results are given of a numerical investigation into the expansion of clouds of fine disperse particles or drops suspended in air under the influence of a blast wave. Two possible situations are simulated: an explosion in front of a cloud and an explosion in the region of a cloud (explosion with simultaneous formation of a drop region behind the shock front). The influence that the determining parameters have on the range and extension of the expansion zone is analyzed, and the results of the numerical experiments are generalized by means of empirical dependences.
