Abstract:

This report covers work carried out at AFAPLs Turbo Structures Research Laboratory TSRL on the transient structural response of an isotropic cantilevered plate subjected to normal impact by a ballistic pendulum. The program was a combined experimentalanalytical effort. The experimental portion utilized a pulsed ruby laser to obtain holographic interferograms of the plates deformation following impact. The analytical portion of the work consisted of mathematically modelling the plate using finite element techniques and studying the models response to impact using the general purpose finite element program, NASTRAN.
