Abstract : The analysis concerns a simple 2D finite element model of a large resiliently mounted steel floor on a deck of a frigate subjected to the effects of UNDEX shock. For the prescribed motion at the deck edges, a kickoff pulse has been taken. The latter being obtained with the SWISS Code for an actual charge geometry. Cable wound shock mounts were installed. Shock response results were compared with those as obtained earlier for a more stiff aluminium floor.
