Abstract

The analytical model, created for the investigation of RC slab behaviour under impact load, is presented in this paper. The possibility of 3D analytical model to analyze the modeling RC slab impacted by falling impactor at the certain place is investigated. The obtained results of the theoretical experiment were compared to the results of numerical investigation in capabilities of ANSYS, which is adequate to practical experiment. The adequacy analysis of analytical model showed that using the created analytical method with properly chosen duration time of impact load enables to investigate dynamics behaviour of RC slab under impact load.
