Modeling of fragmentation of expanding cylinders

,

Abstract:

A simple two-dimensional model of fragmentation of rapidly expanding cylinders in conditions of the ductile behavior of the material and under plane strain is proposed. The model allows us to estimate the average size of the fragment and number of fragments produced by the destruction of the cylinder. Comparison with published experimental data on the fragmentation of the aluminum rings and cylinders yields good agreement.
