The influence of elastic shear deformation on the transverse shear response of a fully clamped beam is investigated in the present paper. The beam is made from a rigid, perfectly plastic material and subjected to a uniformly distributed pressure pulse loading. The elastic shear deformation is idealized by an elastic, perfectly plastic spring with a constant spring coefficient. Analytical solutions are obtained for the transverse shear response, which are then used to predict the occurrence of a transverse shear failure. The method presented in the paper may be extended to study the blast-induced shear failure of other structural elements when the elastic shear deformation needs to be considered.
