The impact performance of reinforced concrete specimens subjected to fatigue loading has not been quantified properly yet. This topic is significant in the field of vehicle impact or similar applications. The paper aims to fill this gap by presenting the on-going experimental program. The paper presents outcomes of the experiments focused on the performance of RC beams subjected to drop-weight impact loading. The behaviour of the beams which were prior to the impact testing subjected to cyclic loading was compared to the behaviour of the beams which were not subjected to cyclic loading.
