Memo

The aim of this short course over two days is to introduce engineers, consultants and researchers to simplified methods for the analysis and design of structural members subjected to explosive loading in the built environment. The course will be based around the application of spreadsheet analysis tools (provided) to typical realistic situations with reference to the widely used technical manual UFC 3-340-02. The course will cover elementary concepts of HE blast loading and structural response in the far-field domain and provide participants with an appreciation of the scope and limitations of analytical methods for modelling these types of problems. Programme Sessions will be presented on the following topics: General considerations Blast effects and characterisation Blast loading calculations Single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) analysis methods Examples using spreadsheet analysis tools Design of structural steel members under blast loading Design of RC structural members under blast loading The ‘hands-on’ sessions require the use of a Windows compatible laptop computer. It is advisable to bring one with you, if at all possible, preferably with Microsoft Excel 2010 (or above) installed.
