Comparison of numerical methods for modeling the impact of an explosion on a metal plate such as LOAD_BLAST; LOAD_BLAST_ENHANCED; Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian; Particle Blast Method; Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics which are implemented in the program LS-DYNA. The adequacy and accuracy of these methods are evaluated depending on the distance ratio to the explosive charge. The advantages and disadvantages of each method and recommendations for their use based on the results of this modeling and the experience of the authors of thisarticleare presented..

MATHEMATICAL MODELLING OF TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SYSTEMS
The current paper presents numerical approach of velocity performances estimations for the EFP (Explosively Formed Projectiles). The proposed method mathematically develops velocities parameters of a particular segment for EFP liner propelled by explosive process. The numerical method is developed, to provide estimations about behavior of projectile vs. time in the EFP forming process powered by explosion. The model is valid for performances estimations of EFP warheads and design data for optimal EFP configuration. Simulations are supported by the software Autodyn for numerical modeling respectively. The obtained numerical results are compared with the available experimental data.
The paper describes the process of determining the blast load on structures and provides a numerical example of a fictive structure exposed to this load. The aim was to become familiar with the issue of blast load because of ever growing terrorist threat and the lack of guidelines from national and European regulations on the verification of structures exposed to explosions. The blast load was analytically determined as a pressure-time history.
