Blast and Fragment Impacts: Pre-study of strengthening of structures subjected to impulse loading

This project purpose is to do a summary of ongoing research of strengthening of concrete structures subjected to impact loading and its aim is to collect, analyse and summarise existing knowledge. A secondary objective is to propose a further investigation that should lead to recommendations for strengthening of concrete structures subjected to impact loading
