Many empirical formulae have been proposed to evaluate the local damage to reinforced concrete structures caused by the impact of rigid projectiles. Most of these formulae have been derived based on impact tests perpendicular to the target structures. To date, few impact tests oblique to the target structures have been conducted. The purpose of this study is to propose a new formula for evaluating the local damage caused by oblique impacts based on experiments and simulations. The new formula is derived by modifying an empirical formulation for normal impact and the agreement with results of past oblique impact tests is discussed.
