The Virtual Test Facility (VTF) is a source code collection of compressible computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational solid dynamics (CSD) solvers. The CFD solvers facilitate the computation of flows with strong shocks as well as fluid mixing. The CSD solvers provide capabilities for simulation of dynamic response in solids such as large plastic deformations, fracture and fragmentation. In addition, the VTF can be used to simulate highly coupled fluid-structure interaction problems, such as the high rate deformation experienced by a metallic solid target forced by the loading originating from the detonation of energetic materials, or the rupture and fragmentation of brittle materials under shock wave impact. At present, all VTF solvers use time-explicit numerical methods that track the various wave phenomena responsible for mediating the dynamic response through the application of suitable numerical methods.
