The Dynamic Responses of RC Columns Subjected to Blast Loading
The blast-resistant performance of columns which are the most important component in the whole structure is a crucial factor which influences the safety of the structures subjected to the blast loads. Studying dynamic responses of RC columns under the blast loading and improving the blast-resistant performance can prevent the structure from progressive collapse due to the damage of the columns in the blast loading, and give people more time to escape from the building in a dangerous situation. Then the same parameters are used to analyze the dynamic responses of RC columns under three typical blast loads. Conclusion can be used for structure blast-resistant design.
