Abstract:

A simplified quasi-static plate theory is presented for analyzing the dynamic response of an infinite plate half-space structural system subjected to a traveling side-on pressure pulse. The theory is applicable to the case of finite plate structure, and provides a method of calculation of the attenuation characteristics of the plate and the time histories of the stresses and motions transmitted to the foundation media. Validity of the theory has been checked against computer calculations based upon a more rigorous Fourier Transform solution and other known solutions. Author
