Paper Title:
Numerical Studies on Cumulative Damage of RC Members under Repeated Impact Loading
  Abstract

We have tried to develop the simple FE analysis method based on continuum damage mechanics to quantitatively evaluate the impact behaviour and the cumulative damage of RC beam under repeated impact loading. As a result, it has been found that the cumulative damage and residual displacement of RC beam under repeated impact load can be properly evaluated, but the crack propagation cannot be evaluated by using the proposed method. This paper presents the following matters: (1) Numerical investigation on the impact behaviour and cumulative damage of RC beam under repeated impact loading by using the proposed method. (2) Numerical investigation of the relationship between cumulative kinetic energy of repeated impact loading and cumulative damage of RC members. (3) Investigation on improved points of our existing proposed method to evaluate the crack path of RC member under repeated impact.
