Abstract:

The problem of the response of structural discontinuities to short duration pulses is studied experimentally. Employing explosively induced stress pulses in thin plastics pulsates containing central circular holes, a dynamic stress concentration factor is determined as a function of pulse frequency. It is concluded for this loading case that the dynamic stress concentration is significantly lower than the static value.
