Resistance against large passenger aircraft crash has
become one of the design criteria for new nuclear power
plants to be built in Finland. This resistance is shown
by numerical models or semi-empirical or analytical
formulas. In order to be reliable, these predictive
methods have to be validated against empirical results.
Scarsity of publicly available results led VTT Technical
research centre of Finland to start its own medium scale
impact testing campaign on reinforced concrete slabs.
Numerous external organizations have joined the campaign
along the way. The tests are funded and designed jointly
with the results shared between the participants
