Computational shock physics has been studied since the 1940s. Limitations in computing resources motivated the abstraction of real-world problems down to 1D approximations. With advances in computing power and code developments, complex 3D models are becoming the norm leading to better results. Recent progress in what is known as industrial CT may have the ability to transform computational modeling. This talk will motivate the need to measure, understand, and simulate as-built defects.
John Korbin is a R&D mechanical engineer at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His work centers on future concepts for numerical modeling, including methods for combining emerging capabilities of X-ray CT scanning and numerical analysis. John earned his M.S. in mathematics from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
