This report summarizes the initial modeling of the global response of the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module BEAM to micrometeorite and orbital debrisMMOD impacts using a structural, nonlinear, transient dynamic, finite element code. These models complement the on-orbit deployment of the Distributed Impact Detection System DIDS to support structural health monitoring studies. Two global models were developed. The first focused exclusively on impacts on the soft-goods fabric-envelop portion of BEAM. The second incorporates the bulkhead to support understanding of bulkhead impacts. These models were exercised for random impact locations and responses monitored at the on-orbit sensor locations. The report concludes with areas for future study.
