    • Abstract


      This paper presents the results of an investigation carried out on Ultra High Strength Concrete (UHSC) panels subjected to low velocity projectile impact to assess impact resistance. UHSC panel of size 350 × 350 mm and thickness 15 mm is studied under drop weight impact loading for three different pre-determined drop heights ranging from 100 mm to 300 mm. The response of UHSC panel in terms of acceleration vs time is obtained experimentally. Numerical model has been developed to simulate the impact behaviour of UHSC panel. The Brittle cracking model is used to simulate the behaviour of UHSC panel under impact loading and to perform parametric studies by varying the volume fraction of steel fibres.
