Abstract
A SERIES OF INNOVATIVE MATERIALS AND COMPOSITE WALL DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE IDENTIIED TO PREVENT SYMPATHETIC DETONATION IN A NEW WEAPONS STORAGE SYSTEM. THIS WILL BE DONE IN FIVE STEPS. THE ENGINEERING DESIGN PARAMETERS WILL BE ESTIMATED. NOVEL MATERIALS AND INNOVATIVE DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE GENERATED USING CHEMICALLY BONDED CERAMICS IN COMBINATION WITH PYRAMIDAL TRUSS CORE SANDWICH PANEL STRUCTURES. A FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED TO SIMULATE THE CAPACITY OF VARIOUS COMPOSITE WALL DESIGNS TO MITIGATE THE EXPLOSIVES EFFECTS AND PREVENT SYMPATHETIC DETONATION. THIS MODEL WILL THEN BE USED TO EVALUATE THE VARIOUS CANDIDATE WALL DESIGNS. FINALLY, THE COST, WEIGHT AND SPACE EFFICIENCIES OF SELECTED WALL DESIGNS WILL BE ASSESSED.
