Abstract

The basic analytical theory for hydrostatically caused implosions of spherical volumes, which has been known for nearly a century, has been extended for the treatment of cylindrical volumes with deformable solid inner structures. Theoretical analyses are developed that treat the inner structure as infinitely hard, elastically deformable, plastically deformable or shattering under the influence of the pressure from the surrounding implosion event. Parametric studies are made of the effect of the inner structure's geometric and material properties on the pressure field of the surrounding water. Results are compared with a previous study that focused on spherical volumes.
