Paper Title:
Sprayed-On Polymer as Concrete Spall Shield
  Abstract

Concrete when subjected to a blast loading from a close-in detonation will experience spalling due to formation of tension waves on the opposite face of the concrete panel. The spalled concrete may be ejected at high velocity causing undesirable effects to occupants. Tests using 1/2kg TNT blocks were conducted on 100mm thick concrete panels to study the effects of spalling and whether the spalled materials can be arrested using a sprayed-on polymeric coating. From the tests, it was observed that without the sprayed-on polymeric coating, extensive spalling occurred. However, with just a 3-4mm thick layer of sprayed-on polymer, the spalled materials were arrested and contained. Numerical models of the reinforced concrete slab were created using Autodyn 2D and the results of the simulation were compared to observations from the tests. There was good correlation between the test results and the simulation results as the size of the crater, both front and back, on the concrete slab were rather similar.
