Computational impact analysis has been applied to civil engineering structures. Most of previous studies, though, were focused on the behavior of RC structures subjected to impactors such as missiles or aircrafts. The effect of strain rate on composite structures has not been clear so far. In this study, several impact analyses considering strain rate effects of steel and concrete are performed and compared to the experimental results. Anochor system of metal liners and steel pipes filled or unfilled with concrete under impact force are successfully simulated.
