Understanding concrete response facing warheads threats is important for both the design of strategic infrastructure protection and the prediction of warhead performances. This ongoing study aims at building a robust approach for the characterisation of concrete behaviour under ballistic impact of Kinetic Energy Penetrator (KEP). A set of tests has been developed and performed to fit the main parameters of the Holmquist Johnson Cook Concrete material model. Highly instrumented tests are conducted to improve the model prediction capability and to identify its limits. After a brief description of the test configuration, the paper focuses on the analysis of an impact test and presents preliminary simulation results.
