Abstract : Theoretical and experimental structural response investigations of space-vehicle-type structures under suddenly external surface loads are described. The simulation of a simultaneous impulsive load by a traveling load such as produced by an explosive is analyzed for the string and membrane. Three dynamic buckling problems are investigated: (1) dynamic plastic-flow buckling of flat plates due to in-plane flow, (2) dynamic elastic buckling of a thin cylindrical shell under axial impact, and (3) dynamic buckling of cylindrical shells of a strain-rate sensitive material. A scheme for correlating the results of structural response investigations concerned with dynamic failure loads of structures is presented and a brief review of available results is given.
