Keywords: Smoothed particle hydrodynamics, Rosenberg analytical model, Energy absorption, ABAQUS, penetration
AbstractPerforming various experimental, theoretical, and numerical investigations for better understanding of behavioural characteristics of metals under impact loading is of primary importance. In this paper, application of smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method in impact mechanics is discussed and effective parameters on impact strength of an aluminum plate are investigated. To evaluate the accuracy of smoothed particle hydrodynamics method for simulating impact, Recht and Ipson model is first provided thoroughly for both Rosenberg analytical model and smoothed particle hydrodynamics method, and then plots of initial velocity-residual velocity and initial velocity-absorbed energy for target of aluminum 6061-T651 are presented. The derived information and simulation results expresses that the maximum error percentage of smoothed particle hydrodynamics method in compared with Rosenberg analytical model is within an acceptable range. Therefore, the results of smoothed particle hydrodynamics method verify the Rosenberg analytical model with high accuracy. Results reveal that higher initial impact velocity decreases the time of projectile penetration, and so penetration depth and length as well as the local damage rate of plate increases.
