Abstract

The paper presents the results of simulation tests of the entry of a floating transporter to a water obstacle. The simulation tests were performed with the use of LS Dyna program, based on the finite element method (FEM). The computational model was developed and used in the simulation of the manoeuvre of entering the water obstacle for the extreme conditions, which are described by NATO standards. For a model, as an example vehicle, the floating transporter PTS-M was used. The results of the application of the elaborated model confirmed the possibility to utilise the method to verify the behaviour of a vehicle in a very important and difficult problem from the point of view of vehicle safety conditions.
