MSIAC CYLinder Expansion database (MCYLEX)
MCYLEX is a database of high explosive cylinder expansion test setups and test results, as well as a collection of Jones-Wilkins-Lee (JWL) equation of states. It has been designed to provide scientists and engineers with a comparison and analysis tool.
MCYLEX has been designed to provide:
Scientists and engineers with a tool, which is easy to use and up to date.
A listing and descriptions of cylinder expansion test geometries and setups.
A database of high explosive cylinder expansion experimental test results with source references that includes comparisons and analysis.
A database of JWL equation of state parameters along with references that can be used for modelling of high explosives.
