Two-Day Short Course: Analysis and Design for Blast Effect on Structures

Two-Day Short Course: Analysis and Design for Blast Effect on Structures

In conjunction with the DAPS 2017 Conference, Karagozian & Case, Inc., USA,  and Impact Engineering Laboratory, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, are proud to present a pre-conference Two-Day Short Course in Analysis and Design for Blast Effect on Structures,  from November 28-29, 2017, at the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.

The course will consist of an introduction to impact, blast and shock threats and their effects on structures with special emphasis on the fundamental concepts and methodologies of the practical techniques and the latest state-of-the-art developments in material property and analytical method. In the second afternoon, simple demo tests will be given in the Impact Laboratory (EN124 in Hawthorn Campus of Swinburne University of Technology).

Details of the course content is shown in the registration details packet below.

The workshop is designed for:

  • Professional engineers and consultants, who are involved in protective design and engineering for buildings and infrastructure against blast and impact loading.
  • Researchers and graduate students, who are interested in blast effects analysis for dynamic responses of structural and mechanical systems.
  • Government officers, who are the decision makers for protective measures and review protective solutions and designs from consultants.
