 Concrete is basic construction material used for plentiful kind of structure. However, in the typical vital structures have to be designed as self-protective such as nuclear plants, Power plants, Weapon Industries, weapons storage places, water retaining structures, & etc., which provides protection against any natural disaster tragedy incident or intentionally produced horrible incidents such as dynamic loading, incident occurs in nuclear plants, terrorist attack, war, missile attack, Tsunami and etc. This paper questioningly is paying concentration on judgment on minimum required kinetic energy for perforation on the concrete structures generated by hard missile using curve fitting empirical study. Argue overcome from this newly developed empirical formula can be used for making design recommendations and design procedures for determining the dynamic reaction of the target to foil perforation.
