The Uintah Software system was developed to provide an environment for solving fluid-structure interaction problems on structured adaptive grids on large scale, long running, data intensive problems. Uintah uses a novel asynchronous task-based approach with fully automated load balancing. The application of Uintah to a petascale problem in hazard analysis arising from "sympathetic" explosions in which the collective interactions of a large ensemble of explosives results in dramatically increased explosion violence, is considered. The advances in scalability and combustion modeling needed to begin to solve this problem are discussed and illustrated by prototypical computational results.
