Impact assessment on local damage to reinforced concrete panels by different projectiles; Impact behavior for projectiles with hemispherical nose shape

Kang, Z.  ; Nagai, Minoru*; Nishida, Akemi ; Tsubota, Haruji; Li, Y. 

Many empirical formulae have been proposed for evaluating the local damage to reinforced concrete (RC) structures caused by rigid projectile impact. The majority of these formulae aim at impact tests perpendicular to target structures, while few impact tests oblique to the target structure have been studied. The final objective of this study is to propose a new formula for evaluating the local damage to RC structures caused by oblique impact based on past experimental and simulation results. Up to now, we validated the analytical method by comparison with the experimental results and conduct the simulation analysis of impact assessment on RC panel by rigid/soft projectile with flat nose shape using the validated approach. In the part 1 of this paper, the same analytical method is used to simulate the local damage to RC panels caused by oblique impact of rigid/soft projectile with hemispherical nose shape. The results associated with penetration depth of RC structure, energy contribution ratio, etc. are presented.
