Abstract

The least well known loading type is the impact loading that are affecting on to RC structures. Several impact tests have been used to demonstrate the relative brittleness and impact resistance of concrete and similar construction materials. However, none of these tests has been declared to be a Standard test, at least in part due to the lack of statistical data on the variation of the results. In this study; total ten beam specimens at which five of them are manufactured from normal concrete compression strength without reinforcement are manufactured. Remaining five had high concrete compression strength. These specimens are tested under the impacts loading that are applied by dropping constant weight hammer from five different heights. The acceleration arises from the impact loading is measured against time. The change of velocity, displacement and energy is calculated for all specimens. The failure modes of the specimens with normal and high concrete compression strength are observed under the loading of constant weight impact hammer that are dropped from different heights. A finite element model that is made by using ABAQUS software is used for the simulation of experiments and model gave compatible results with experiments.
