Failure Modes for Single-Layer Reticulated Domes under Oblique Impact
FE models of both the single-layer Kiewitt-8 reticulated domes with a span of 60m and the cylindrical impactor were developed incorporating ANSYS/LS-DYNA. Afterward, fourteen groups impact are simulated by changing the impact position or impacted angle on reticulated dome, and impact velocity and mass of impactor are changed for each group impact. On the basis of large numbers of numerical simulations, characteristics of dynamic response for reticulated dome under impact are shown. And four failure modes (Members slightly damaged, Local collapse of dome, Global collapse of dome, Members shear failed) are presented for single-layer Kiewitt-8 reticulated dome under diverse impact. The distributing of failure modes for the fourteen types impact are different from each other, and the adverse position and angle are summrized.
