Tiger computer program documentation
Abstract
TIGER is a digital computer program written in FORTRAN IV for calculating the thermodynamic state attained in a heterogeneous system of known atomic composition containing gases, liquids, and solids with arbitrary equations of state. This volume contains the theoretical basis of the TIGER code and its application to the calculation of the properties of detonating condensed explosives. The equations used by Brinkley to calculate the thermodynamic state in a nonideal heterogeneous system of known atomic composition in chemical equilibrium are derived and extended to treat such systems in partial equilibrium. A brief discussion of the ChapmanJouget (CJ) theory of detonation is followed by an account of the methods used to compute conditions in the CJ wave and the properties of the detonation products along Hugoniot curves and isentropes. The presentation in this volume will be of interest primarily to the reader concerned with understanding the theoretical background of the code rather than to the user of the program.
