Abstract

High velocity impact and shock or blast responses are a critical design characteristic determining sizing of composite parts and, ultimately, weight savings. This study demonstrates the applicability of peridynamics to accurately predict nonlinear transient deformation and damage behavior of composites under shock or blast types of loadings due to explosions. The peridynamic predictions correlate well with the experimental results available in the literature. Therefore, peridynamics provides the ability to predict residual strength and durability for improving structural designs of composites under such loading conditions.
