The fast-growing population of mankind has brought out household needs and working structures that might be subjected to static and dynamic loads. Impact loads and repetitive dynamic loads can produce an overload on the structures in a very short period that causes relentless casualties and unfortunate property losses. The response of the concrete material on strain rate increase is critical. The dynamic characterization of concrete, lack of adequate and consistent study causes disagreement about strain rate sensitivity of concrete, so a consensus has not been reached. In this study, quasi-static (3.55x10-5, 3.23x10-4, and 2.97x10-3 s-1) and high strain rate (140-250 s-1) tests were conducted and the effect of strain rate on the mechanical behavior of concrete was investigated both experimental and numerical. A modified Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar test setup was used, by using an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers) rubber pulse shaper, non-oscillatory results and nearly constant strain rate were reached, and premature failure was prevented. Modeling the test setup was conducted in Ls-Dyna and the Holmquist-Johnson Cook material model parameters were found. A good agreement between experimental and numerical results was reached. The strength enhancements of concrete material, while increasing strain rate was noticed. Using both experimental and numerical studies, the total strength increase is due to inertia effect and strain rate sensitivity effects were observed.
