Many empirical formulas have been proposed for evaluating local damage to reinforced concrete structures caused by impacts of rigid projectiles. Most of these formulas have been derived based on impact tests perpendicular to the target structures. Up to now, few impact tests oblique to the target structures have been carried out. This study has been conducted with the purpose of proposing a new formula for evaluating the local damage caused by oblique impacts based on previous experimental and simulation results.
In this paper, the results of simulation analyses for evaluating the local damage to reinforced concrete panels subjected to normal and oblique impacts by deformable projectile, by using the simulation method that the validity was confirmed through simulation analysis of past impact experimental results. Based on the results of these simulation analyses, the quantitative evaluation of reduction effects in the local damage caused by the difference of the impact angle is investigated.
