Abstract:

In this study, dynamic response of cantilever Fiber Metal Laminate (FML) plates subjected to the impact of a large mass is studied. Aluminum (Al) sheets are placed instead of some Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) layers. The effect of the Al layers on contact force and deflection of the plates is investigated by considering the interaction between the impactor and the target in the impact analysis. A two degrees-of-freedom system consisting of springs-masses and finite element modeling of the ABAQUS/Explicit software were employed to model the interaction between the impactor and the target. The results indicate that some parameters like the layer sequence, mass and velocity of the impactor, mass of the target are important factors which affect the impact response of the plates.
