This course discusses the effects of blast on civilian structures. The latest forms of structural and glazing protection are discussed.
In practical design, extensive use of software is usually made. However, this course covers design principles with appropriate reference to the SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures.
Hand-calculations are emphasized so that a ‘feel’ for the likely behavior of the structure under blast loading is obtained. Although the course covers only RC buildings, as these are the most common in Singapore, the principles can easily be extended to structural steel buildings.
