Abstract:

An analytical method is outlined, and a related computer program Viscoplastic Beam Analysis VPBA is discussed, for prediction of response of a viscoplastic cantilever beam to ground shock. Some beams, which could be built using standard piping, are designed and analyzed using inputs typical of those on the floating shock barge. Author
