Event description

Description

Protective building design requires a detailed understanding of blast loads and explosion damage mechanics. Many of the tools available for blast analysis are based upon a combination of empirical data, analytical approximations and scaling rules, which are not always accurate for explosive events in complex urban environments.

This lecture will give an overview of the blast analysis tools currently available, demonstrating where and when such tools are valid, and a look at state of the art possibilities.

Speaker

Nick Misselbrook is an Associate Principal and Office Director for Thornton Tomasetti Defence Ltd. Nick has an MSc in Weapons Effects on Structures from the Royal Military College of Science, is a Chartered Engineering and Chartered Physicist and a Member of the Register of Security Engineers and Specialists.
