Presents results from a study to investigate the response of 3 standard corrugation profiles which have been subjected to pressure time histories typical of a hydrocarbon explosion. In particular, the study has investigated the sensitivity of peak displacements, plastic strains and dissipated energy to mesh density and loading as these are commonly used parameters to describe the performance of structures and to assess structural integrity in commonly used failure models.
