Dynamic Mechanical Properties of Steel Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Subjected to Shock Loading
One-stage light gas gun is used to study the dynamic mechanical properties of reinforced concrete (SFRC) subjected to shock loading. The material of projectile is the same as of the target. The stress-time curves are recorded by three manganin pressure transducers embedded in the targets beforehand. The data of experiment are analyzed by self-designed program using the path line principle of Lagrangian analysis method. With the stress records, complete histories of particle velocity, density (and thus strain) and specific internal energy can be obtained at any point within the gaged region of the material. Moreover, the numerical constitutive relations of RC are obtained and the strain rate ranges from 104 to 105 per second. The result of experiment indicates that the stress-strain curves of SFRC present stagnant-return properties. And some other dynamic properties can be gained, such as rate dependent, waveform dissipation etc.
