Paper Title:
Finite Element Analysis of a Single-Layer Reticulated Dome under Impact Loading
  Abstract

Finite element model of both the single-layer Schwedler reticulated dome with the span of 50m and a Cuboid impactor were developed, incorporating ANSYS/LS-DYNA. PLASTIC_KINEMATIC (MAT_003) material model which takes stain rate into account was used to simulate steel under impact load. The automatic point to surface contact (NODES TO SURFACE) was applied between the dome and impact block. Three stages of time history curve of the impact force on the apex of the single-layer Scheduler reticulated dome including the impact stage, stable stalemate stage, the decaying stage were generalized according to its dynamic response. It must be pointed out that the peak of the impact force of the single-layer reticulated dome increase with the increase of the weight and the velocity of the impact block, but the change of the velocity of the impact block is more sensitive than the change of weight of the impact block for the effect of the peak of the impact force, and a platform value of the impact force of the single-layer reticulated dome change near a certain value, and the duration time of the impact gradually increase. Then four stages of time history curve of the impact displacement were proposed according to the dynamic response of impact on the apex of the single-layer reticulated dome based on numerical analysis. Four stages include in elastic deformation stage, plastic deformation stage, elastic rebound stage, free vibration stage in the position of the residual deformation.
