Abstract:

Two dynamic structural analysis computer codes have been developed for the analysis of missile type structures subjected to impulsive loads produced by nuclear effects blowoff. One code, IMPLATE, is applicable to flat plate structures prestressed by inplane mechanical and thermal loads and the other code, IMPSHELL, can be applied to thin cylindrical shell type structures preloaded by internal pressure. The impulsive loads are calculated with the aid of a photoelectric energy deposition code, KNISH, and a blowoff model. A theory for correlating the nuclear effects blowoff impulse with impulse produced by a laboratory simulation exploding fail technique is presented.
