dc.description.abstractAn infinitely long, ring-stiffened, submerged, elastic cylinder having uniformly spaced elastic bulkheads is the structure considered. Loading is applied by a plane acoustic shock wave with front parallel to the cylinder axis. Dynamic pressure in the fluid is resolved into a free-field incident part and a scattered part. Structural response and scattered pressure in the surrounding fluid are found using finite element modeling of structure and fluid. Introduction of Fourier series makes the fluid region mathematically two-dimensional. A radiation, or non-reflecting, condition at the outer boundary of the fluid region is shown to give good results. A parametric study is made of effects of shock pulse rise time and duration on structural response. Results are presented as combinations of shock pressure and submergence pressure just sufficient to induce structural failure.en_US
