The 3-D finite element analysis model of beam-edge structure with spaced multiple layers under bird impact is established. Numerical simulations are implemented by using the non-linear contact-impact code ANSYS/LS-DYNA when the birds collide at three locations of the structure respectively. The failure process of the structure and the equivalent plastic strain at supports are obtained. The residual strength of the structure after impact is predicted. The results show that the front spars are penetrated or cracked after the leading edge is perforated. The equivalent plastic strain at the support is much higher when the bird impacts the structure at the central location. Both the structure deformation and failure mode from the simulation are consistent with the results of full scale test, which proves the validity of the method proposed in this paper.
