The use of RKPM meshfree methods to compute responses to projectile impacts and blasts nearby charges
Hyung-Jin Choi, John Crawford and Youcai Wu

 
Abstract
    This paper presents results from a study concerning the capability afforded by the RKPM (reproducing kernel particle method) meshfree analysis formulation to predict responses of concrete and UHPC components resulting from projectile impacts and blasts from nearby charges. In this paper, the basic features offered by the RKPM method are described, especially as they are implemented in the analysis code KC-FEMFRE, which was developed by Karagozian & Case (K&C).
 
Key Words
    ultra high performance concrete; meshfree method; reproductive kernel particle method; penetration; crater analysis.
