By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Describe structural responses to blast loading with reference to ‘equivalent single degree of freedom’ analysis
Use pressure impulse diagrams for approximate response assessment
Employ principles and guidelines for protective design against the effects of blast
Design reinforced concrete structures subject to blast loading
Senior engineer/Team leader/Manager
Bob Sheldon was formerly senior lecturer in protective structures at the Centre for Defence Engineering at Cranfield University. Bob is now an independent consultant for security engineering and protective structures.
Mariella is a structural engineer with expertise in blast effects on buildings, a field she's been specialising in since 2011. She currently leads the Protective Design Team at Arup Resilience Security and Risk in London and is a member of the Register of Security Engineers and Specialists, under the category of protection against the effects of blast. With over two decades at Arup, Mariella has contributed to a wide range of projects, including commercial buildings, transportation hubs, major infrastructure projects, cultural and sport venues, where she has developed comprehensive protective design strategies that require blast effect analysis on structures, facades, ensuring safety and resilience in the built environment.

This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
This interactive online course will share current state-of-the-art frameworks for the adoption of resilience-based design in professional practice, demonstrating advantages compared to a traditional prescriptive design and providing examples of how they benefit the client.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This two-day, in-person course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
This course establishes good practice in the design of reinforced concrete structures. Through practical exercises, it will cover concept, design, flat slabs and finite element analysis.
