Abstract:

High blast-induced airloads and the structural response of lifting surfaces are investigated for determining aircraft vulnerability and safety. Of major interest is the case where the primary structure of the lifting surface undergoes deformations of an inelastic nature. Structural response prediction methods, for completely elastic reponse conditions, are well documented and quite reliable. However, the methods of evaluating the structural response must be extended into the inelastic region and verified through the use of experimentally collected datat. The structural response of F-84 horizontal stabilizers mounted on a rocket sled and exposed to a high explosive blast was photographically recorded. Author
