This five days short term course is intended to cover the theoretical and practical aspects of the recent technological advancements made in analysis, design and mitigation of blast loaded structures using advanced materials. The speakers will initiate an introduction to the concepts of disaster mitigation, mitigation strategies to be adopted during the planning, concepts of structural dynamics, advanced materials and their properties for analysis and design along with their behaviour under such situation. The course will include blast phenomena and its interaction with structures, their analysis and design.
This course is proposed with an aim of educating the participants for mitigation of disaster due to the blast. This is intended to achieve through 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.
