Disaster Resilient Building impact testing - nudura

Test demonstrates NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form wall system against the impact of debris at tornado wind speeds. All tests were conducted in strict accordance to the guidelines of FEMA 320/361 and ICC-500. The debris criteria required a 15 lb. wooden 2 x 4 to be propelled at 100 mph for a 250 mph ground speed tornado.

Dynamic performance of concrete slabs reinforced with ...

On slabs S-6 and S-7 with the 100 mm thick and slab S-5 with 75 mm thick and ρ bot. = 1.15 % there were not concrete debris and scabbing. These slabs were only damaged but not entirely perforated. Also a few narrow and hair line cracks were observed on the back surface of the slabs S-5, S-6 and S-7.

Resisting Wind and Seismic Forces| Concrete Construction ...

May 17, 2007 · Concrete walls don't have the debris problem. Just providing the concrete and reinforcement needed to build the walls and decks (ceilings or floors) of a house is usually all that's needed to provide the strength against wind and seismic forces and to protect from debris.

Concrete Walls Protect Best Against Wind-Blown Debris

You already know the most dangerous part of a tornado is not high winds but the debris which they carry. With that knowledge Texas Tech engineers compared the impact resistance of concrete residential wall construction with conventionally framed walls.

Concrete Demolition Tools - The Concrete Network

Hammer impact energy is the most important selection criteria when choosing a mounted breaker for a particular job, since the hammer must be able to hit the concrete hard enough to fracture it. Only when impact energy is sufficient does impact rate (blows per minute) become a factor.

A study on the ricochet of concrete debris on sand ...

The Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) algorithm embedded in ANSYS LS-DYNA was adopted to model the impact process of concrete debris on sand surface. In this study, the concrete debris was meshed by a Lagrangian grid as solid, whereas the air and the sand were meshed by an Eulerian grid as fluid.

The Influence of an EPS Concrete Buffer Layer Thickness on ...

The failure of debris dams impacted by the massive stones in a debris flow represents a difficult design problem. Reasonable materials selection and structural design can effectively improve the resistance impact performance of debris dams. Based on the cushioning properties of expanded polystyrene (EPS) concrete, EPS concrete as a buffer layer poured on the surface of a rigid debris dam was ...
