Engineering Structures under Fire & Blast

A two-day course delivered by ASRANet

About the course

This course is organised by ASRANet.

Blast

The lecture includes structural response under blast loading. The fundamental of blast loading such as the principle of the scaling law, blast profile are introduced. The basic design principles in the relevant design guidance such as SCI (1999), TM5-1300(1990) will be also introduced, which include numerical method (classical solution and incremental solution) to solve the structural response; the way to assess the structural response and human response using iso-damage diagrams (pressure-impulse diagrams); design procedure for steel and reinforced concrete members under the blast loading.

Fire

This syllabus also includes structural response under fire. Basics of fire physics and the engineering idealisations made to characterise fire induced “loading” on structural systems. Detailed description of the key features of behaviour of common engineering materials (primarily steel and concrete) under high temperatures and the key responses expected when simple structural systems are exposed to fire. Traditional methods of design to ensure adequate fire resistance and recent trends towards performance based engineering in a probabilistic framework. On completion of the course you will be able to apply a sound knowledge of various technologies for checking response of structures under fire and blast loading.

Price

The cost of this course is £650 excl. VAT. SECED Members will receive a 15% discount on booking.

Recordings of past events

Most of our evening meetings are recorded, including the biennial Mallet-Milne Lecture. The recordings are managed by the ICE and are made available for a year after the event. Go to ICE's Event Archive to find recordings of recent SECED events. SECED members (and ICE members) get exclusive early access to recorded lectures for a period of three months after the event. After this period, recordings are made available to all users.
