Abstract:

This is the third phase of an effort which examines the application of dynamic finite element methods to the analysis of shelter-like structures in a nuclear environment. In Phases 1 and 2, the elastic deformation modes of the shelter structure, their sensitivity to variations in the applied airblast wave forms, and the effects of inelasticity and computer modeling were investigated. The reported phase three consists of applying the methodology developed to a particular case study, i.e., Event S4 of the HAVE HOST test series. Event S4 was the test of a half-scale prototype shelter using the HEST simulated attack environment. The objective of this effort was to provide pre-test analysis and prediction data for Event S4. Detailed pre-test analytical results are provided for the headworks and the shelter main body.
