Behaviour of SFRC Slabs under Dynamic Loads

  • Wojciech Radomski

Abstract

The paper is based on the test results obtained by the author and other investigators during the last few years. The differences between the behaviour of RC and SFRC slabs under the impact loads are presented. The problem concerning the perforation of slabs by projectiles is particularly discussed. An author’s original formula for prediction of so-called perforation thickness of SFRC slabs is proposed. Moreover, some general research problems concerning the dynamic behaviour of RC and SFRC structural elements are discussed, especially the modelling laws.
