Paper Abstract

The Italian VS 1.6 anti-tank landmine pressure plate was considered in a high fidelity finite element modal analysis using the ANSYS multi-physics application. The paper describes the approach taken to obtain material properties, namely density and Young's modulus, of the plastic components of the mine. It also discusses and provides illustrations of the three-dimensional finite element domain model with boundary conditions. The paper also describes the method by which the model was verified in a laboratory setting.
