Pagination or Media Count:
Structural analyses related-to a Standardized Integrated Command Post Shelter SICPS mounted to a High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle HMMWV were conducted to determine the response of the former to rail impact loading conditions shown in Figure 1. The Finite Element method FEM was used to establish the relative structural contributions of the floor panel components when subjected to simulated rail impact. Stress fields of the floor panel face sheets were obtained and compared for reinforced and non-reinforced baseline models subjected to static body forces. Conclusions regarding the structural performance of the floor reinforcements were made based on these comparisons.
