3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN IV and Assembler language; IBM 360/370.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
USRHYD is an integrated system of codes used to study one-dimensional transient-shock problems, mainly the study of radiation effects. The shock waves result from the rapid in-depth deposition of radiant energy (either electrons or x-rays) incident upon the face of a multi-layered specimen.
USRHYD links modified versions of the one-dimensional Lagrangian hydrodynamic code
PUFF 66, the electron deposition code CCC-173/ZEBRA, and the x-ray deposition code BIGGS as
subsets. Improvements include free-form format of input, automatic zoning for the finite element
calculation, stored physical constants and other parameters, and an option to specify or calculate
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Library, conversion, compatibility, and driving routines are used to link the three codes mentioned and to keep to a minimum the input data. Finite difference methods are used in the hydrodynamics calculation, analytic approximations for x-ray deposition, and Monte Carlo techniques combined with Goudsmit-Sanderson multiple-scattering theory and the continuous slowing-down energy-loss theory for the electron transport calculation.
The minimum inputs are the problem geometry, specifying the layers and dimensions; the
material of each layer; the incident energy, specifying the form of the energy and its spectrum; and
the shine time of the incident radiation. USRHYD calculates the depth dose profile of the absorbed
energy, zones the problem for the finite element hydrodynamic calculation, calls on the USRHYD
library for thermophysical and equation of state data, and performs the one-dimensional shock
calculations on the multi-layered specimen. The user may input all or any part of his own data if
he so desires.
