Abstract:

The objective of the program was to study the loading and structural response of wall panels. The report describes technical progress and reports the data from numerous loading study tests with a range of test geometries. Correlations between theory and test results for panel failure phenomena are presented and discussed. Also provided are appendices on the shock tunnel and its instrumentation. The work to date was summarized on the development of a theory of the dynamic failure of brittle materials.
