Abstract

Abstract The perforation of steel-bar-reinforced concrete target is studied numerically in this paper using LS-DYNA code and the modified Taylor–Chen–Kuszmaul continuum damage model. The crater diameters on both the front and back surfaces of the concrete target and the residual velocity of the projectile predicted by the numerical simulation are in good agreement with the experimental results reported by Hanchak et al. [Int J Import Eng 1992; 12: 1–7]. The influence of the steel-bar-reinforcement on the perforation of concrete target is also studied numerically in the present paper.
