High velocity impact modelling of ice into ice: application to outer Solar System landers and penetrators
Abstract
We present a new, robust, material model (incorporated within ANSYS AUTODYN) for water ice which successfully models impacts at velocities up to 1 km s-1. This work forms part of an ongoing programme aiming to provide a validated hydrocode model for ice which will give us the ability to predict the kinematics of a wide range of impact events in the solar system. The material model operates within thermodynamic and kinetic constraints, so that material damage for ice can be closely correlated, and validated, between simulated and ...
