A Finite Element Model of the TRL Honeycomb Barrier for Compatibility Studies 2005-01-1352

A finite element model of the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) honeycomb barrier, which is being proposed for use in vehicle compatibility studies, has been developed for use in LSDYNA. The model employs penalty parameters to enforce continuity between adjacent finite elements of the honeycomb barrier. Results of impact tests with indentors of various shapes and sizes were used to verify the performance of the computational model. Numerical simulations show reasonably good agreement with the test results.
