An experimental investigation of the counterintuitive behaviour in thin aluminium plates under fullfield test is presented in the paper. Special focus is placed on structural response and permanent deflection of the panels after the complex response. Thus, a series of tests with the plates varied in two kinds of thickness were conducted, where impulsive loading was generated by detonating the explosives at various standoff distances. As loaded impulsively, the vibration response was observed and the final configuration of each plate was measured and recreated. It is shown that all plates subjected to free air blast loading in such conditions exhibited plastic permanent deformation combined with distinct counterintuitive behaviour, as the plates deformed to the opposite direction of the incident wave. In addition, the characteristics of the permanent deflection can be divided into 2 typical deformation shapes, and the occurrences of which were correlated to the dimensionless parameter proposed in previous studies, confirmed to be an approximate indicator to describe the influence of loading conditions herein.
