Effect of dynamic loading on compressional behavior of damping concrete

  • In drop test scenarios related to assessing and licensing the storage procedure of spent fuel and high active waste, the casks under examination are generally not equipped with impact limiters. Hence, the extent of mechanical stresses in case of an assumed handling accident is largely affected by the ground properties of the reception hall floor in the specific storage facility. Unlike conventional brittle foundation materials, damping concrete performs quite well in such applications as it features high stiffness as well as high energy absorption due to the filler pore volume. However, its damping ability is not sufficiently exploited in current finite element (FE) calculations due to a lack of advanced material models for simulating its impact response. An implementation of qualified concepts that account for plastic, strain rate dependent behavior requires additional information that has to be provided by systematic test series.

However, its damping ability is not sufficiently exploited in current finite element (FE) calculations due to a lack of advanced material models for simulating its impact response. An implementation of qualified concepts that account for plastic, strain rate dependent behavior requires additional information that has to be provided by systematic test series. BAM recently started a research project to generate such data, subsequently to develop and to improve numerical methods for the analysis of impact limiters and damping foundation material and thus to optimize safety assessment tools for the design of transport and storage casks. A major part of this research concerns dynamic compression tests of variably shaped specimens conducted at a servo hydraulic 1MN impact testing machine as well as at a BAM facility for guided drop tests. This presentation focuses 100mm damping concrete cubes deformed vertically at constant rates under different constraint conditions. For example, a special fitting jig was constructed to subject the specimens to multi-axial loading. Thereby a deformation of 60% could be applied. Simulation was conducted by FE code ABAQUS™ based on material models “Concrete damaged plasticity” and “Crushable foam” which both allow defining rate sensitive nonlinear stress-strain relations in compression beyond the classic metal plasticity approach.zeige mehrzeige weniger
