RC beams under blast load: Reliability and sensitivity analysis

The effects of blast loading on structures can be very dangerous: damages and failures are expected with serious threats to structural safety and human life. Materials stresses and strains are often pushed to the limit and the modelling of these phenomena can be very complex. In order to design blast-resistant structures it is very important to determine what are the key parameters of this problem.

Dear Collegues,

On behalf of the International Scientific Committee, I am pleased to inform you of the 3rd International Conference on IMPACT LOADING OF LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES (ILLS 2011) taking place in  Valenciennes, France, June 28th-July 1st, 2011:

Beginner with abaqus.. need help modelling an impact load


Im really quite new to using abaqus and I am having trouble with my modelling.  Esentially it is quite an easy problem but my knowledge of the programme is limitted.  Basically all I want to model is an impact load on a wall but im not sure about the analysis steps.  Initially i have been using a static step with a concentrated load but I dont know how to model the dynamic response the wall should experience after the load has been applied.

If anyone can help with this I would appreciate it a lot.
