[SEAOC] [Q:] Explosion wave ---> Damping?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Problem:	Design of the reactor containment of a NPP
		against explosion wave.

Question:	What factors should be taken in consideration
		when assuming the damping of the structure under
		this type of loading? 4 or 7 % of critical damping -
		how to rectify the higher damping value to be
		used in the calculation?

		Does someone know of a paper/book or has experience
		in this field?

Thanks for any comment !

Best regards,
