Abstract

This study describes the use of a refined zigzag finite element to investigate the dynamic response of sandwich panels subjected to blast loading. The time variation of blast loading is represented in the form of a triangle. The solution is achieved by using a novel adaptive time stepping algorithm. The accuracy of the present approach is established by comparison against 3-D finite element models.
