Abstract:

This report outlines a study on the response of simple geometric shells to blast loading, per formed as in-house research as a part of AMS 5010.11.844. Three areas that are basic to the understanding of the problem are discussed. These are The free air blast characteristics, the interaction of the blast wave and the stationary shell and the response of the shell to the blast impulse. Several techniques are cited which have been applied to shell response. A simplified analytical approach is used to predict the in cipient damage points of simple shells. This approach is based on a dynamic load factor which enables one to compute the dynamic buckling pressure from the static formulations. Author
