An experimental investigation was conducted to study the interaction between bubbles created by a nearfield underwater explosive (UNDEX) and a curved aluminum plate structure. The experiments were performed at the University of Rhode Island in an UNDEX facility. High-speed cameras were used to measure full-field displacement, velocities, and strains during deformation by using the Digital Image Correlation Technique. In addition, during the experiments, pressure transducers were used to record the pressure pulses emanated from the UNDEX.
