Impact resistance of plain concrete and FRC composites gains high importance in the present days. This paper presents outcomes of the experiments focused on performance of FRC slabs subjected to impact loading of various strain rates. The FRC slabs, thickness 30, 60 and 120 mm were subjected to various drop-weight impacts. The different drop-hammer weights provided different loading speeds and strain rates. The performance of the slabs was recorded with the use of high speed cameras. The cameras were used for impact speed control and specimen deflection measurement. With the use of the recordings, the force-time response of the slabs could be plotted. The plots correspond to the mechanical behaviour obtained by static load tests (loading speed 0.2 mm/min) but several differences can be found. Several types of FRC (varying fiber material, fiber content, etc.) were tested and evaluated. The experimental program is supplemented by numerical modelling which provides good agreement with the experimental results.
