Abstract

Studies are currently being conducted at the University ofWollongong to utilise axially restrained non-composite steel-concrete-steel (SCS) panels in designing high performance protective structures against close-range explosive detonations. The proposed sandwich panels do not utilize shear connectors to connect the steel faceplates to the concrete core. High effectiveness in resisting blast and impact loads is achieved through special detailing of the flared end connections that provide axial fixity aswell as restraining the relative movement between the concrete core and the steel faceplates.This paper presents three-dimensional finite element modelling techniques to simulate the response of these panels under static and impact loading conditions using non-linear explicit finite element code LS-Dyna. Three high-fidelity models were developed to calibrate the experimental results and it is found that the numerical models are able to describe the behaviour of protective panels under static and dynamic loadings with reasonable accuracy.
