Abstract

The study of buried structures under various burial conditions and loadings is incomplete and inconclusive owing to the various and peculiar applications. Mechanical mine clearing with mine flails is one example where the application features are distinct from other geo-mechanical applications. The response of structures in soil has been modeled using a dynamic model that considers the soil characteristics. Further refinement of the established model was conducted and validated in the first iteration of the model's completion. The lateral component of the soil is now considered and factored in to study the buried structure's response. This study showed that a simple yet comprehensive mechanical model may be used to study the responses of buried structures to surface impact loadings. The validity of the proposed model may demand a certain degree of further refinement to accommodate other loadings, buried structures, and burial conditions while considering all physical phenomena that occur in the soil medium before, during, and after loading.
