The impact forces and the dynamic responses of RC slabs are analyzed. Discussions are focused on the effects of falling rock’s shape and impact angle. Sphericity and impact angle affects the impact force and dynamic response of RC slabs. article i nfo abstract Article history: A spherical falling rock is usually assumed in the design of reinforced concrete (RC) sheds.
