Structural dynamics of glazing panel breakage for long duration blast loads

Structural dynamics of glazing panel breakage for long duration blast loads
Structural dynamics of glazing panel breakage for long duration blast loads
This paper investigates dynamic loading and response of glazing panels subject to blast. To date, modeling of this
has been challenging, with many relying upon simplified SDOF calculations. In this research, blast trials were conducted to investigate the response of annealed glazing panels of varying thickness at a range of overpressures. A thorough comparative study was conducted against CFD analyses and pressure histories were re-mapped into an Applied Element (AEM) model. This produced a highly accurate representation of the experimental results. This paper shows that dynamic response of glazing panels can be accurately modeled through the synthesis of fluid dynamics and AEM. As a result, research has begun to verify AEM’s capabilities with long-duration blast.

Abstract

This paper investigates dynamic loading and response of glazing panels subject to blast. To date, modeling of this
has been challenging, with many relying upon simplified SDOF calculations. In this research, blast trials were conducted to investigate the response of annealed glazing panels of varying thickness at a range of overpressures. A thorough comparative study was conducted against CFD analyses and pressure histories were re-mapped into an Applied Element (AEM) model. This produced a highly accurate representation of the experimental results. This paper shows that dynamic response of glazing panels can be accurately modeled through the synthesis of fluid dynamics and AEM. As a result, research has begun to verify AEM’s capabilities with long-duration blast.
