Abstract

The dynamic behaviors of laminated flat and tapered composite plates subjected to blast loads are investigated. Numerical solution techniques and their computational applications which are proposed before in the literature are summarized to show the accuracy and prediction of the response of blast loaded laminated composite plates with and without damping effects. It was shown the effect of damping is not significantly effective for the first peak response. However, it is considerable with the second peak and it becomes greater as time increases. The effect of chosen displacement functions for the approximate-numerical methods is indicated. Deflection and strain–time histories of plates obtained from experiment, finite element, and approximate-numerical methods are compared and found a good agreement.
