Experimental Tests of the Blast Resistance on UHPFRC and NSC Elements
The resistance of the material to the effects of explosions is a very current issue. Concrete of normal strengths is subject to significant damage and collapse, which must be prevented by the design of reinforcement. The explosion causes extreme local loading, which is difficult to predict and the reinforcement need to be dimensioned complexly. By using UHPFRC material reinforced with scattered reinforcement in the form of steel wires, the reinforcement is evenly distributed throughout the entire volume of the sample or construction. In the case of a combination of such a material with steel in the sense of connected constructions, there is a suitable use of both materials, a spread of stress and an overall greater resistance. The paper describes experimental tests of various types of UHPFRC and NSC steel-bonded structures and describes their resistance to explosion.
