Analysis of Dynamic Response of Mine Rescue Chamber under Axial Impact Load
In order to research the problem of rescue chamber colliding with the tunnel wall. The theoretical model of rescue chamber has been formed, based on the principle of energy conservation, by using theories of plates and shells, large deformed plate and shell, and by analysis of dynamic response of mine rescue chamber under axial impact load. This model includes initial velocity, contact force deformation energy and shell deformation. Dytran software was applied to build the finite element model of the rescue chamber contacting the rigid plate. Through comparison emulation result and theoretical analysis result, this model is proved to be highly reliable. The theoretical calculation and the simulation indicated that there were obvious relationships among the ability of the mine rescue chamber under axial impact load with the thickness, depth of flat spherical shells. If the thickness or depth increases, then the chamber could stand more. It is also confirmed that increasing the depth of flat spherical shells can minish the impact force for making impact process abate, which provides a basis for the research of rescue chamber.
