Abstract

The blast resistance of glass-fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) sandwich structures has been investigated for increasing shock intensity and for multiple blast exposures. In this study, sandwich panels of 1.6 m x 1.3 m were subjected to 30 kg charges of C4 explosive at stand-off distances from 8 m to...

Experimental data provides detailed data for sandwich panel response, which are often used in civil and military structures, where air-blast loading represents a serious threat. High-speed photography, with digital image correlation (DIC), and laser gauge systems were employed to monitor the deformation of these structures during the blasts. The experimental data provides for the development of analytical and computational models.
