RC beams under blast load: Reliability and sensitivity analysis

The effects of blast loading on structures can be very dangerous: damages and failures are expected with serious threats to structural safety and human life. Materials stresses and strains are often pushed to the limit and the modelling of these phenomena can be very complex. In order to design blast-resistant structures it is very important to determine what are the key parameters of this problem.

What is the importance of strain rate on structural response under blast load?

What is the importance of strain rate on structural response under blast load?

This and other issues are discussed in the recent paper from Stochino F. and Carta G.:

“SDOF models for reinforced concrete beams under impulsive loads accounting for strain rate effects”, DOI: 10.1016/j.nucengdes.2014.05.022, Nuclear Engineering and Design 276, (2014), 74-86.
