The Response Of Confined Concrete To Hard Impact (No. 9 Mar-00)

This work was presented by Sarah Prichard at the Inaugural Young Researchers Conference held by the Institution in London in March 1999 and won joint first prize – Ed

Until quite recently, buildings designed to resist impact loads were predominantly limited to those in the military sphere. With the advent of high speed vehicles, airborne missiles such as rockets and aircraft, and dropped drilling equipment damaging structures on the seabed, the scope for unforeseeable impact has widened substantially. However, it would be impractical to design all structures to resist impact loads, the probability of which is low compared to a normal loading situation. Thus, of necessity, special attention is given to the design of structures where the risk of impact is high or where structural failure as a result of impact could result in consequences disproportional to the severity of the impact. Examples of this would include aircraft collision with nuclear power stations or objects being dropped on large sub-sea oil storage caissons. Read the rest of this entry »
