Abstract:

A study of the effects of thermalblast exposure on representative aircraft panels was carried out. Pre-test planning and analytic predictions were carried out and compared with the experimental results obtained. Correlation with experimental results was good for the individual effects of internal pressurization or blast overpressure on panels, but correlation proved to be a difficult task for experiments involving thermal exposure, which have a low confidence level.
