Team Number: 027
School Name: Clovis High School
Area of Science: Explosives
Project Title: Exploring Shrapnel of Explosions
Problem Defenition: The point of our project is to find out how far the particles of a bomb are at a certain time. The particles do not have to have the same ammout of velocity at any time, nor do they have to be even in size. The particles however will be same in size in our program. Problem Solution: A program is currently under development where the user, inputs the velocity & X-axis cordinantes, along with the total time & time intervals. Then in turn out-putting the distance from the point of explosion on the X-axis to the current distance at a certain time. Progress to Date: We currently have our prgram up and running and can be viewed at http://ais.cms.k12.nm.us/~sellis/challenge/challenge. In our program, it is only on the X-axis and we are currently working on adding the Y-axix, and hopefully the Z-axis. We ar currently working on finding a graphics program that will be able to simulate the explosion of the device. Due to lack of participation and effort concering some of our team members, we are a little behind, but we are catching up, we have also dropped those members who show a lack of interest in our work. Expected Results: A program that can show particles of an explosion on the X, Y, and Z-axis' and display distance from the point on X, Y, and Z-axis' from the point of the ecplosion. Also a graphics program the will give a good simulation of our program.
