To calculate the impact-induced flow fields within the solid planets, we used the Eulerian-Lagrangian code developed by Thompson [].

Our approach was to numerically compute the evolution of impact induced flow fields and calculate the time histories of the key measures of crater geometry (e.g. depth, diameter, lip height) for variations in planetary gravity (0 to 10 9 cm/s 2), material strength (0 to kbar), and impactor radius ( to km). These results were used to establish the values of the open parameters in the scaling laws Cited by: 17, O'KEEFE AND AHRENS: PLANETARY CRATERING MECHANICS TABLE 1.

Planetary cratering mechanics. By John D. Okeefe and Thomas J. Ahrens. Abstract. To obtain a quantitative understanding of the cratering process over a broad range of conditions, we have numerically computed the evolution of impact induced flow fields and calculated the time histories of the major measures of crater geometry (e.g., depth Author: John D.

The 6th meeting on Cosmic Dust (Cosmic Dust VI) is held at CPS (Center for Planetary Science), Kobe, Japan from Monday, August 5, through Friday, August 9, This issue of Planetary and Space Science will be primarily devoted to Cosmic Dust VI and contain the papers presented .

This volume contains papers which were accepted for publication by the Organizing Committee of the Symposium on Planetary Cratering Mechanics. Papers were solicited which addressed one of the following major topics: I. Experimental studies II. Planetary impact cratering III. Theoretical calculations IV. Scaling.   Terrestrial impact structures—Principal characteristics and energy considerations. Impact and explosion cratering: Planetary and terrestrial implications.
