Engineering codes are used to provide system-level simulations based on reduced equation sets such as:

  • Potential flow simulations
  • Hydraulic transient analysis
  • Analytical models
  • Total system performance analysis

Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) develops and enhances algorithms for a broad range of applications such as:

  • Penetration analysis
  • Shaped charge analysis
  • Blast pressure loading
  • Weapon target interaction
  • Hydraulic transient analysis
  • Droplet dynamics simulation
