Abstract:

Tests were performed in Event DIAL PACK on 1- and 3-foot diameter steel cylinders with hemispherical end caps to obtain information on the dynamic behavior of structures containing fluid a internally pressurized and b with backpacking. The four test structures were oriented with their longitudinal axes parallel to the surface and normal to a radius through ground zero. The data were used to compare the variation of the parameters of internal pressurization and backpacking and to check the results of a two-dimensional, nonlinear, large deformation computer code developed for this task. The 3-foot diameter models were designed according to the recently developed optimization equations by NCEL.
