Abstract:

The response of a generic shell structure to electron beam excitation is modeled analytically by use of finite difference codes. Good agreement between model predictions and experimental data for the deformation of a cylindrical shell was obtained for a specific assumed circumferential variation of electron beam fluence. Consideration is given to the potential of a large scale electron beam facility to serve as a simulator for x-ray loading of structures. Author
