A METHOD FOR MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ELECTRODYNAMIC SIMULATIONS ON UNSTRUCTURED MESHES
I. V. SobolevThe paper describes numerical simulations of electrodynamic equations on unstructured polyhedral meshes by a second-order Godunov-type method. For ideal magnetohydrodynamics we use three difference schemes based on an approximate Riemann solver. We also discuss exclusion of the numerical magnetic charge by the CT method. The difference scheme for Maxwell’s equations employs an exact Riemann solver. Test simulations are presented and compared with published data.

|INCORPORATING SPECTRAL AND KINETIC EFFECTS IN THE RADIATIVE HEAT TRANSFER APPROXIMATION FOR RADIATIVE TRANSFER SIMULATIONS
N. G. KarlykhanovThe paper considers an approach to averaging the radiative transfer equation over spectrum and angular variable. As distinct from the known methods, the algorithm under consideration reduces an averaged problem to an equation for the radiative heat transfer approximation. It is demonstrated that the simulation results obtained using the proposed algorithm - provided that some conditions are satisfied - are close to the simulation results obtained in the kinetic statement. As applied to optically thick media, this algorithm is shown to naturally transform into the radiative heat transfer approximation with a mean Rosseland path.

|APPLICATION OF A RELAXATION MODEL OF FRACTURED VISCOELASTICITY FOR THE DESCRIPTION OF HIGH-EXPLOSIVE SPECIMEN TESTING USING A SPLIT-HOPKINSON PRESSURE BAR
O. M. VelichkoA single-material viscoelastic model of a fractured medium is considered, which has been formulated based on publications of US authors, and its modification for viscous relaxation and fracture growth kinetics is presented. An approximate computational algorithm accelerating the process of model fitting for an HMX-based high explosive has been developed. The fitting is based on the criterion of acceptable agreement between calculated data and results of HE specimen testing on a split-Hopkinson pressure bar apparatus from a publication of Russian authors. Numerical modeling of HE specimen deformation is performed based on a computational model implemented by the Godunov method.

|SINGLE-PHASE FLOW SIMULATIONS USING AN ALGEBRAIC MULTIGRID SOLVER FOR SYSTEMS OF LINEAR ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS
Yu. N. Deryugin, P. A. MashenkinUsability of an algebraic multigrid solver for systems of linear algebraic equations in underground hydrodynamic simulations is considered. A methodology for solving the problems of single-phase flow in non-uniform and anisotropic porous media on unstructured meshes composed of convex non-self-intersecting cells is presented. It is shown experimentally that the efficiency of using the algebraic multigrid solver grows with increasing non-uniformity of bed rock and increasing problem mesh size. The algebraic multigrid solver is compared with the Krylov-type PCG solver in error convergence and computing time.

|REPEATED USE OF A HIERARCHICAL DATA STRUCTURE IN AN ALGEBRAIC MULTIGRID SOLVER FOR SYSTEMS OF LINEAR ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS
Yu. G. Bartenev, A. P. KarpovRepeated use of a hierarchical data structure generated in an algebraic multigrid preconditioner and solver for a series of SLAEs with the same matrix profile is considered. This approach, called partial construction of a multigrid algebraic solver fully pre-constructed for a previous SLAE, involves updating merely the coefficients of the pre-constructed coarse matrices without changing their structure. Examples of using a combination of full and partial construction of an algebraic multigrid solver in different modifications of its implementation are given. This solver construction approach in the PMLP/ParSol and some other libraries is shown to considerably reduce the time of solving SLAEs in simulations of different physical processes. The issue of adaptive combination of full and partial algebraic multigrid solver construction is discussed in brief.

|"CORIDA": A PROGRAM PACKAGE FOR PREDICTING RADIATION FIELDS BASED ON THE VARIATIONS IN THE PROPERTIES OF RADIATION SOURCES AND ENGINEERING SECURITY BARRIERS
A. I. Blokhin, P. A. Blokhin, Yu. E. Vaneev, I. V. SipachevThe paper describes the functionality and structure of a program package called CORIDA being developed for radiation safety analysis of legacy nuclear facilities and radioactive waste disposal sites. Results of such computations are heavily dependent on the emissive properties of radioactive wastes; that is why the program package includes a nuclide kinetics module. Neutron and photon transport is simulated using the TDMCC code. To simplify the pre-processing procedure in the program-specific format, the program package contains a special graphics editor and a data converter for problem geometry, materials and radiation sources. Results of testing the nuclide kinetics module and the program package as a whole are reported.
