About the Course


The Lecture includes Structural Response under blast loading. The fundamental of blast loading such as the Principle of the scaling law, blast profile are introduced. The basic design principles in the relevant design guidance such as SCI (1999), TM5-1300(1990) will be also introduced, which include numerical method (classical solution and incremental solution) to solve the structural response; The way to assess the structural response and human response using Iso-Damage diagrams (Pressure-Impulse diagrams); design procedure for steel and reinforced concrete members under the blast loading.


This syllabus also includes Structural Response under Fire. Basics of fire physics and the engineering idealisations made to characterise fire induced “loading” on structural systems. Detailed description of the key features of behaviour of common engineering materials (primarily steel and concrete) under high temperatures and the key responses expected when simple structural systems are exposed to fire. Traditional methods of design to ensure adequate fire resistance and recent trends towards performance based engineering in a probabilistic framework.

On completion of the course you will be able to apply a sound knowledge of various technologies for checking response of structures under fire and blast loading.

Who should attend?

The course is intended for Engineers, Operations’ managers, Applied Scientists and Technologists interested in design & structure under blast loading. Engineers, managers and scientists involved in design, assessment and management of a wide range of engineering structures will also benefit from this course.
