Study on Damage Characteristics of Concrete under Impact Load and the Constitutive Model after Damage


Article Preview

The damage ‘freezing’ test of concrete was carried out with the static load and SHPB testing technique, so the relatively loss ultimate bearing capacity could express the damage in macro-level. The result showed that the dynamic damage of the concrete increased with the increasing strain or strain rate and the dynamic damage had a certain strain threshold. Based on the damage evolutive law of concrete whose probability density was distributed Weibul1 distribution, the impact damage factor equation was put forward. Besides, the unified equation which described the whole stress-strain process of the concrete after impact damage were established. Compared with the testing data, it showed that the experiment and theoretical results were in good agreement.
