In this thesis, novel metaconcrete material with engineered aggregates is developed to resist impulsive loads. The designed metaconcrete material has favorable wave attenuation capacity and tunable dynamic property. The performances of metaconcrete material and structure under static and dynamic loading are investigated by experimental tests, analytical derivations and numerical simulations. The outcomes from this study could provide guidance for the design of metaconcrete material and structure to resist multi-hazardous dynamic loads.
