AFYON AB SHOCK ANALYSIS FOR SQUADRON OPERATIONS FACILITY

Project Name and Location  : Shock Analysis for Squadron Operations    Facility, Afyon AB, Turkey

Owner  : MOD Turkey, NATO Inf. Dept.

Design Fee    : 40,000.-$

 

A/E services include a detailed study to estimate the shock effects of a  detonation in the vicinity of   semihardened structures. A computer aided analysis is carried out for the following cases:

  • Atmospheric explosion near the structure, causing a direct loading,
  • Underground explosion loading the foundations (J trajectory),

Parameters such as weapon size and detonation distance from structure, mechanical properties of the soil and depth of weapon at the time of detonation are taken into consideration in calculating the effects of a blast. Shock transmitted through the soil or air to the structure is calculated and shock isolation measures are planned when the computed shock spectra is found in excess of the shock tolerances of the equipment.
