Wave Propagation in Rock Under Blast Loads

Application ID: 12811

Transient analysis of the wave propagation in rock mass caused by a short duration load on the surface. Such loads are typical during tunnel constructions and other excavations using blasting.

The model shows the use of the Low-reflecting boundary conditions to truncate the computational domain to a reasonable size. The results are in very good agreement with those presented in the following reference:

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
