This course provides you with the knowledge of the structural response under blast loading and fire. The fundamentals of blast loading such as the principle of the scaling law and blast profile will be introduced. The basic design principles in the relevant design guidance such as SCI (1999) and TM5-1300(1990) will be covered, 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), and design procedure for steel and reinforced concrete members under the blast loading.

This course will also introduce the basics of fire physics and the engineering idealisations made to characterise fire induced “loading” on structural systems. 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 will be explained. Traditional methods of design to ensure adequate fire resistance and recent trends towards performance- based engineering in a probabilistic framework will be discussed.

On completion of the course you will be able to apply a sound knowledge of various technologies for checking the 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 & fire. Engineers, managers and scientists involved in design, assessment and management of a wide range of engineering structures will also benefit from this course.
