Abstract:

Equations of motion are derived for the transient response, to a shock wave, of a submerged shell with internal structures. A substructuring procedure, which does not require calculation of a system stiffness matrix, is employed to obtain these equations in a general manner for arbitrary internal structures approximated by finite elements.
