A method of developing a vulnerability map of a commercial aircraft is presented using MSC/DYTRAN and MSC/NASTRAN. The intent of the map is to establish the vulnerability of every point in the cargo hold where a bomb can explode. One might interpret each point in the cargo bay as having four dimensions. Three are spatial coordinates and the fourth is the maximum size of the bomb the structure can withstand without catastrophic failure. The vulnerability of the aircraft is examined from two…

A Numerical Method for Blast Shock Wave Analysis of Missile Launch from Aircraft

An efficient empirical approach was developed to accurately represent the blast shock wave loading resulting from the launch of a missile from a military aircraft to be used in numerical analyses.
