Simulation of Responses of Liquid Filled Double Bottom Structures Subjected to a Closely Underwater Explosion Shock Loading
The purpose of this work is to study the effect of liquid in double bottom structures subjected to a closely underwater explosion shock loading. The comparative analyses are made by use of a commercial, explicit finite element program. Based on the difference of depth of liquid in double bottom structures and distance between explosive and outer bottom, six cases were simulated in this paper. The results show that liquid in cabins can enhance the resistance of double bottom structures to an underwater explosion.
