Description/Abstract:
SIX SMALL BURIED ARCHES WERE SUBJECTED TO BLAST LOADS FROM A NUCLEAR E XPLOSION TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THEIR STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR. THE PRI NCIPAL OBJECTIVES WERE TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF A TRAVELING BLAST WA VE ON ARCH RESPONSE AND TO CHECK MODEL SCALING RELATIONSHIPS. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE TRAVELING WAVE CAUSED ARCH RESPONSE IN THE FIRST A NTISYMMETRICAL MODE, WHICH WAS SUPERPOSED ON RESPONSE IN A SYMMETRICAL MODE. THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF THE RESPONSE IN THE ANTISYMMETRICAL MODE WAS NOT DETERMINED. THE SCALING RELATIONSHIP FOR OVERPRESSURE W AS TO BE FOUND TO BE UNITY. INFORMATION ON THRUSTS, MOMENTS, ACCELERA TIONS, PRESSURES, DEFLECTIONS, AND ARCHING IS ALSO PRESENTED.
