An experimental investigation of the performance of non-composite steel-concrete-steel protective panels under large impact loading

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In conventional steel-concrete-steel (SCS) construction, the external steel

    plates are connected to the concrete infill by welded shear connectors. This paper

    describes an experimental programme in which the response of axially restrained noncomposite

    (without shear connectors) SCS protective panels subject to impulsive

    loading was studied. A comprehensive parametric study was carried out to investigate

    the effects of different types of infill materials, amount of impact energy, and the bond

    between the concrete core and steel faceplates, on the performance of the protective

    panels. The experimental results showed that the panels developed high load-carrying

    capacity through the tensile membrane resistance of the steel faceplates at large

    deformation. The panels demonstrated a highly ductile response and were able to

    sustain large deformation up to 18 degrees end rotation without collapse. The high

    strength and high ductility characteristics of these SCS panels make them an

    economical alternative to the existing protective barrier structures.
