    Abstract

    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
