When a shock interacts with a Sn coupon, micrometer-scale particulate fragments, called ejecta, are usually formed and emitted from its free surface. Understanding the characteristics of such ejecta is of great importance in many fields. The velocity distribution and amount of particulate mass are directly dependent on several physical properties of the shock wave and shocked material states. In this paper, we numerically interrogate ejecta production and its dynamics for a wide range of shock loading conditions in a supported wave form and quantify the correlation of ejecta source with shock strength as well as surface roughness, which is represented by randomly perturbed surfaces and the one with a macrofeature superimposed. Furthermore, an unsteadiness-aware drag coefficient is discussed and implemented to accomplish ejecta transport studies.
