Plenty of researches have been carried out to establish a rational assessment method for nuclear power plants against local damage caused by accidental projectile impact. Most of the empirical formulas have been proposed for quantitatively investigating the local damage to reinforced concrete (RC) structures caused by rigid projectile impact. These formulas have been derived on the basis of impact tests performed perpendicular to the target structure, while few impact tests oblique to the target structures 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 experimental and simulation results. At present, we have validated an analytical method via comparison with experimental results and have conducted simulation analyses of oblique impact assessments on RC slab using various projectiles with flat nose shape by this method. In this study, the same analytical method will be applied to investigate the perforation damage to RC slab subjected to oblique impact by projectiles with hemispherical nose shape. In this paper, the effects of projectile's nose shape on the local damage of RC slab, the residual velocity of projectile and the time history of energy transmission will be discussed.
