Abstract:Finite element modeling of bird impacts has been developed and calibrated using the 3-D impact analysis code MSC/DYTRAN. These modeling efforts have shown that the Arbitrary Lagrange Euler (ALE) formulation within MSC/DYTRAN is capable of capturing the physics of the bird impact problem, producing impact pressures and damage similar to that of a real bird.
This work is divided into two areas. First, a review of the literature was carried out to identify the physical processes, pressures and dama…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
