In order to validate the numerical procedure, the explosion of a mine was recreated within the non-linear dynamics software, AUTODYN. Two models were created and analysed for the purposes of this study — buried and flush HE charge in sand. The explosion parameters — time of arrival, maximum overpressure and specific impulse were recorded at two stand-off distances above the ground surface. These parameters are then compared with LS-DYNA models and published experimental data. The results, presented in table format, are in reasonable agreement.
