Dynamic Analysis of Prestressed Concrete Material Beams
Prestressed concrete material structures have the properties of higher crack resistance, higher degree of solidity and lighter weight. A new analytical method is proposed to investigate the dynamic deflection responses of the partially prestressed concrete beams subjected to blast loads. The new method uses an equivalent single degree of freedom system, which combines an elasto/viscoplastic rate-sensitive material model with the proposed static layered section approach. The analytical results agree well with the test data.
