Essential blast resilience and resistance training

Aim

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
  • Apply American Society of Civil Engineers' technical guidelines to practical structural design of blast-resistant facilities  

Tutors

Bob Sheldon is a senior lecturer in protective structures at the Centre for Defence Engineering at Cranfield University. Piroozan Aminossehe is an independent consultant.

Intended for

Practising engineers who wish to gain an insight into current methods of structural analysis and design against blast loads.

Entry criteria

No specific knowledge for attending this course is required, although some knowledge about elementary structural dynamics is preferable. Don't delay booking your place - if we have not received enough bookings to break even one month before the date of the course, we will have to cancel it.
