If you have a question about this talk, please contact Stephen Walley.

In this seminar, I will provide an overview of my blast engineering research to date including an overview of my PhD research concerning extreme, ‘long-duration’ blast loading on structural steel columns through novel full-scale experimental trials and advanced numerical modelling. The unique challenges and importance of characterising and modelling blast loading accurately will be explained within the contexts of structural engineering and the broader blast injury and protection fields. Knowledge gaps and priorities for future blast research (including blast loading methodologies) will be presented as part of a current interdisciplinary project at the University of Southampton to establish a novel evidence-base and research network.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
