SDOF Models for RC and FRC Circular Plates under Blast Loads

Abstract:

Article Preview

This work presents simplified models, in the form of single degree of freedom (SDOF)elasto-plastic systems, for the dynamic analysis of traditional reinforced concrete (RC) and fibre-reinforced concrete (FRC) circular plates under blast loads. Two cases have been examined inthis study: simply supported and resting on Winkler-type soil plates. Both cases intend toprovide a simplified tool for predicting the response respectively for specimens subjected toblast pressure wave inside shock-tube facilities and for slabs on ground under blast loads. Thesecond case also represents the loading conditions inside a new shock tube facility specificallyintended for the investigation of underground tunnel lining subjected to blast loads.
