Abstract : Nonlinear impact and analyses were performed on the CAMPACT shipping container. Longitudinal and lateral drops onto rigid surfaces were treated. Analyses were performed with the ADINA computer code, and included both geometric and material nonlinearities. Modeling of the CAMPACT emphasized the inner door and door attachments in an attempt to predict the onset of leakage at the inner door seal. The CAMPACT was loaded with pallets of M55 rockets and the floor roller assembly. The contents were treated as concentrated masses applied to the inner frame at appropriate locations for each impact direction. Keywords: Impact strength, Landing impact, Impact shock, Shipping containers.
