About the Course

Fire The Lecture includes Structural Response under fire. The fundamental fire physics and heat transfer are introduced. The basic fire dynamics principles and the fire load according BS EN 1992-1-2 (standard and parametric fire) are presented in Lecture 6. The effect of elevated temperature on materials will be presented next. Focus will be given on steel and concrete according BS EN 1992-1-2 and the existing literature. Finally, the procedures for fire design of steel structures according BS RC3-1-2 will be presented.

Blast 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.

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.
