Dynamic plastic response of beams subjected to localised pulse loads
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-31)
Localised blast loads give rise to high gradients of overpressure detrimental to structural elements as beams and plates. This article presents an analytical study on the dynamic plastic response of beams made of a ductile metallic material due to close-in pulse pressure loading. The close-in pressure load is characterised by a spatially varying function constant over a central region and exponentially ...
