The consecutive multiple impact resistance of reinforced concrete pier column becomes the most concern in the engineering field. Numerical simulation the process of consecutive multiple lateral impacts is the necessary measures to master the internal mechanism. The fine 3D finite element model is established combining solid element and beam element. The dynamic damage constitutive model of concrete is developed. To react to problem of calculative efficiency and damage accumulation effect, the reduced integration method and full restart analytical method of explicit dynamic analysis strategy is taken using element failure criterion. The translation process of the system energy, the time history value of impact mass acceleration and strain gauge and failure mode of the reinforced concrete pier are compared with the experiment results. The feasibility of the modelling and the validity of the analysis strategy are validated. This study can provide computation basis for research of reinforced concrete structures under consecutive multiple impact.
