Analysis of the Dynamic Response of Underground Structures under Internal Explosion
Analytic solution for the dynamic response of underground structure is generally based on the theory of cylindrical shell. The underground structure constructed to resist internal blast is not suitable to be treated as cylindrical shell structure and is difficult to get analytic solution. In this paper, finite element code LS-DYNA is employed to calculate the dynamic response of underground blast-resistant structures exposed to internal blast. Two structures with different thickness buried in four types of surrounding rocks are calculated, and the influence of the surrounding rocks to the dynamic response of underground blast-resistant structures is analyzed.
