The tendency of the waveform curve can directly reflect the deformation and failure process of specimen in the SHPB (Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar) test of concrete. Different loading rates will result in the different ultimate failure modes, waveform curves. Furthermore, these differences are obviously characterized by some feature points of waveform or stress-strain curves. It is to say for concrete-like damage softening materials, the waveform features contains lots of information of material response. In this study, large dimension (Ф120mm) SHPB tests of concrete specimens have been conducted. Four typical failure patterns of concrete specimens are classified, as well as some typical waveform features, e.g. the “double-peak” and“compression wave” phenomena of reflection wave, etc. On the other hand, the numerical simulations corresponding to the experimental tests are performed by means of the 3D meso-scale model of concrete material. In the numerical results, waveform features observed in experiment are reliably reproduced and predicted. Associating with waveform features, the violation indicator of the specimen stress equilibrium in the SHPB test is first identified for concrete-like damage softening materials. The concrete material behaviors forstress non-equilibrium are further analyzed, e.g. DIF and damage development, etc.
