GAO, FuYin; JI, Chong; LONG, Yuan  e  SONG, KeJian. Dynamic responses and damages of water-filled cylindrical shell subjected to explosion impact laterally. Lat. Am. j. solids struct. [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.11, pp.1924-1940. ISSN 1679-7825.

An account is given of some principal observations made from a series of experiments in which metal cylindrical shells were subjected to lateral explosion impact by different TNT charge mass and stand-off distance. These cylindrical shells were filled with water in order to identify the main effects produced by the fluid-structure interaction. In comparison, the explosion impact experiments of the empty cylindrical shells were also carried out. The effects of TNT charge mass, stand-off distance, cylindrical shell wall thickness and filled fluid (water) on perforation and deformation of metal cylindrical shells were discussed, which indicated that water increased the wall strength of the cylindrical shells under explosion impact loading, and the buckling deformation and perforation of the cylindrical shell was significantly influenced by the presence of the water; blast-resistant property of the tube under explosive impact loading of 200g TNT charge was much excellent; deformation and damage of empty cylindrical shell were more sensitive to stand-off distance changed. ALE finite element method was employed to simulate the deformations and damages of empty and water-filled cylindrical shells under explosion impact loading. The experimental and computational results are in agreement, showing the validity of the computational scheme in complex fluid-structure interaction problems involving metal materials subjected to explosion impact. The results show that internal pressure of water will increase when subjecting to impact loading, the anti-blast ability of tube structure is significantly enhanced.
