This course demonstrates how significant blast resilience and resistance is possible with careful design, planning and detailing of a structure.

Learning outcomes

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

Intended for

  • Graduate engineer

  • Mid-career engineer

  • Senior engineer/Team leader/Manager

Bob Sheldon

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 Gallo

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.
