CRASHC: a two-dimensional code to compute the response of axisymmetric shipping containers to end-on impacts

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Safety evaluation of radioactive material shipping containers entails determining their response to severe impact conditions. In this paper a computer code for obtaining the nonlinear response of axisymmetric shipping containers to end-on impact is described. The nonlinear equations of motion are derived with the finite element method. Large displacements and nonlinear strain and material properties are considered. The resulting computer code, CRASHC, is then used to simulate several impact tests. Results from these analyses indicate that the code can be successfully used for simulating these impact conditions. Based on the simulations, several recommendations are made for improving these kinds of ... continued below
