Abstract:

The major objective of this study was the development of an experimental technique and of necessary test facilities for reduced - scale models to study the dynamic response behavior of protective structures against conventional weapons. Special emphasis was placed upon the behavior of layered systems such as buried structures under high dynamic loading that results from close-in detonations. This work includes the development and verification of scaled-model systems, and the development of computational capabilities for conducting wave propagation analysis of the layered systems. The latter is required for evaluation and use of the test data.
