 ABOUT THE SHORT COURSE

 

This two-day short course is intended to edify the theoretical and practical aspects of the recent technological advancements made in blast resistant and anti-terrorism design of structures. The speakers will initiate an introduction to the concepts of structural dynamics, material behaviour, blast analysis and design. While the course would deal from fundamental level of understanding to research being conducted in the area by the faculty members from IIT Delhi, it would also give exposure to practical level to the participants based on some typical case studies by the professionals.

 

Blast induced impulsive loads on structures can have devastating effect on civil infrastructure including buildings, bridges, monumental structures etc., and subsequently can cause loss of lives. Hence, blast resistant and anti-terrorism design is extremely necessary in order to safeguard civil infrastructure and human lives. Design of blast resistant structures requires thorough understanding on the structural dynamics, behaviour of materials under high strain rate of loading and blast analysis methodologies.

 

This course is proposed with an aim of making participants cognisant of the blast resistant design aspects by making use of available commercial finite element (FE) packages too. The course will provide a unique opportunity to learn basics of blast analysis of structures using the FE software and subsequent design.

The short course will be of immense interest to the faculty members, graduate students, practicing civil, structural, geotechnical engineers, architects and consultants. Especially, for practicing structural engineers, the course would provide complete guidelines on how to design blast resistant structure for an intended level of threat scenario.
