In this paper a transient dynamic finite element analysis is presented to study the response of centrally impacted delaminated composite pretwisted cylindrical shells. An eight noded isoparametric plate bending element is employed in the finite element formulation. Effects of transverse shear deformation and rotary inertia are included. To satisfy the compatibility of deformation and equilibrium of resultant forces and moments at the delamination crack front a multipoint constraint algorithm is incorporated. The modified Hertzian contact law which accounts for permanent indentation is utilized to compute the contact force, and the time dependent equations are solved by Newmark’s time integration algorithm. Parametric studies are performed in respect of relative size of delamination and angle of twist for graphite-epoxy composite cylindrical shallow shells subjected to low velocity normal impact.
