Abstract

This research was undertaken to: 1) design and construct a wall and basic subassembly of an emergency storm shelter comprised entirely of wood that could resist a "missile" impact at 100 mph or multiple impacts at 80 mph; 2) study the difference in impact response for various specimen configurations, angles of impact, and support conditions; and 3) compare results for impact tests to static tests.
