Dynamic Mechanical Behavior of Reinforced Concrete
The dynamic compression experiments of reinforced concrete are carried out by one-stage light gas gun apparatus which subjects the reinforced concrete to deformation at strain rates of the order of 104/s with confining pressures of 1~1.5GPa. The stress-strain curves of reinforced concrete with different impact velocities are obtained using Lagrangian analysis method. Experimental results indicate that reinforced concrete is non-linear, rate-sensitive and pressure-dependent.
