Abstract:

The application of X-radiation as a lethal mechanism or decoy discrimination technique is studied theoretically. Volume 1Secret applies the studies of this volume to vulnerability analysis of the MARK 4 re-entry vehicles and decoys. This volume presents the unclassified studies of the dynamic response of shell structures and materials to a pressure pulse. The following subjects are treated 1 dynamic buckling criterion of shallow shells under uniform impulsive loading, 2 modal analysis of axisymmetric buckling of clamped, shallow, spherical shells, 3 dynamic membrane stresses in a circular elastic shell, 4 dynamic collapse of a rigid-plastic ring under a distributed impulsive load, 5 comparison of rigid-plastic-ring results with experiment, 6 plastic collapse of ring with rigid outer layer, 7 shock wave progagation in solid and compactible media and 8 large elastic deformations of dynamically loaded rings.
