The new physics-based computational code under development through the ONR Future Naval Capabilities (FNC) program represents the state-of-the-art in coupled fluid-structure finite element calculation for fluid-structure coupled analyses such as those encountered in implosion applications. Weidlinger Associates Inc., in collaboration with Professor Jeong-Hoon Song of the University of South Carolina, propose to leverage their extensive and respective expertise towards enhancing the capability offered by DYNA-3D/AERO-F through development of procedures, best practices and automated constitutive calibration methods. We propose to enhance the code usability as well through the development of a graphical interface that acts as a guide to the analyst.
