Blast Simulation

  1. Aug 17, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    Planning to do an Blast simulation on a vehicle.
    Should I go for FSI or Use the load as pressure.
    Please throw some light on the same.

    Thank you,

    Have a look at vehicle impact standards in your national code to see how they treat impulsive forces on barriers, bridges and other structures due to impact.
    The UK codes state a specific applied load. There is much TRL research about this published.

    This sort of thing is mostly still done uncoupled.
    LS-DYNA does have FSI capability for blast, specifically, but it is rather new.
