Estimate of the number of fragments formed during the rapid expansion of a ring

, ,

Abstract:

In works [1,2] we have proposed a simple two-dimensional model of fragmentation of rapidly expanding cylinders in conditions of the ductile behavior of the material and under plane strain. The model allows us to estimate the average size of the fragment and number of fragments produced by the destruction of the cylinder. In this paper we show that the method proposed in [1-2] can be used to estimate the number of fragments in a three-dimensional problem of fragmentation of rapidly expanding rings.
