A three-day short course designed for professional engineers, consultants, researchers and graduate students, who may be involved in the analysis, testing, modelling, design and the assessment of structures against impact, blast and shock loads. The course will be also be suitable to architects, estate developers, security managers, and government officers who need updating in the latest developments in this area. The course will cover basic and theoretical concepts, material characterisations, analytical, modelling and design methods and practical applications for structural protection against impact, blast and shock effects.
Impact and blast threats exist in a wide range of engineering, security and defence sectors, which have been frequently linked to industrial safety in the fields of surface/air/space transportation, nuclear power plant, offshore platforms, critical facilities in other industries and infrastructures, and protections against impact, blast and shock effects in accidental, terrorism and battlefield events. Depending on the impact velocity, blast intensity and shock environment severity, the material and structural behaviour may become very different from their quasi-static behaviour when inertia and/or strain-rate effects become dominant in these events, which need to be considered in the design of protective structures for impact and blast loads and shock environment. This short course integrates material characterisation, basic theory, design methodology and latest re-search progress and offers an extensive introduction to professionals and researchers for dealing with impact, blast and shock effects in various engineering fields.
This course will provide an introductory training for practising engineers, consultants, researchers and research students, who may be involved in dealing with impact and blast effects in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, nuclear engineering, aerospace engineering, oil and petrochemical engineering and defence engineering and industries.
