A strain-rate dependent constitutive model for plain concrete for the determination of stress-time-history from given monotonic strain-time-histories is presented. A series of 10 uniaxial tensile experiments carried out in the Hopkinson Bar apparatus at JRC at Ispra, form the basis for model evaluation. A comparison is done between model and experiments regarding concrete stress-strain behaviour. The model is implemented as a material model for the 1-dimensional non-linear analysis of structural systems, and it is used for the simulation of Hopkinson Bar.
