Structures subjected to Blast and Fragment: Concrete structures subjected to fragment impacts

Start date 01/09/2012
End date The project is closed: 31/08/2017
The overall project objective is to develop improved methods for the analysis of explosive-loaded concrete structures. The project includes literature with evaluation, and development of computational models for shock wave and fragment impact. These modeling techniques can be both analytical and/or advanced numerical models to describe and increase the understanding of the complex physical phenomena that occur in this type of loaded structures.

The project is carried out at the Division of Structural Engineering in the research group Concrete Structures

Keywords: Concrete, fibre reinforced concret, numerical anlaysis, material modelling, dynamic loads, blast wave, fragment impact
