In this research, we studied the distribution of impact melt layers underneath Xiuyan crater using hydrocode simulation. The target was modeled by granite based on the rock type distribution around the crater and projector by iron, because most small and isolated terrestrial craters are formed by iron projectile. The simulated crater diameter and depth are 1 710 and 320 m, respectively, which are in good agreement with observations of 1 800 and 307 m (except for the post-impact lacustrine sedimentation). The validated model shows that impact melt materials were first formed along the transient crater floor and wall by highshock pressure, and then refilled inward the crater along with collapse of the crater wall. The final style of impact melt materials is interbedded with shock breccia underneath the crater center, which is verified through two layers in the borehole located in the crater center.
