Performance of reinforced concrete columns under the vehicular impacts
Gurbuz, Tuba, Thambiratnam, David, Perera, Nimal, & Ilki, Alper (2010) Performance of reinforced concrete columns under the vehicular impacts.

Frontal columns in buildings and columns in car parks are vulnerable to vehicular impacts. This paper treats the impact response of such concrete columns under vehicular loads and the use of polymer wrap to enhance their impact capacity. Comprehensive dynamic computer simulation techniques are used along with strain rate effects and hour glass control to evaluate the impact response. Results indicate the effectiveness of wraps in enhancing the impact capacity of these columns.
