Title: SP-281: Behavior of Concrete Structures Subjected to Blast and Impact
Author(s): Editors: Ganesh Thiagarajan, Eric Williamson and Christopher Conley / Sponsored by: Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 447 and ACI Committee 370
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 279
Abstract:This CD-ROM contains 15 papers that were presented at sessions sponsored by ACI Committees 447 and 370 at the ACI Fall 2010 Convention in Pittsburgh, PA. In this publication, engineers report on how they are approaching the challenging task of predicting the response of structures subjected to blast and impact loading. Both experimental and analytical efforts are represented, often in tandem. The analytical approaches taken include single-degree-of-freedom modeling, highly nonlinear transient dynamic finite element simulations, and coupled Lagrangian-Eulerian simulations. Papers in the publication cover the design and evaluation of new and existing structures, as well as techniques for strengthening existing structures.
