Dynamic load is one which changes with time quickly in comparison to the structure's natural frequency. If it varies quickly, the activity must be determined with a dynamic analysis. Explosive loads and impact loads are transients, or loads that are applied dynamically as one-half cycle of high amplitude. This transient load is applied only for a specific and typically short period of time in the case of blast loads typically less than one-tenth of a second. The response of the engineering structural building due to the reason of periodic load RCC building structure has been severely damaged, collapse and develop cracks. Bomb blast is the best example for impulsive load. To determine the response of a G+3 RCC building model in STAAD Pro subjected to triangular, rectangular and sinusoidal impulsive force for 0.5 seconds with maximum magnitude of 100kN.
