Virtual Engineering Structures Under Fire & Blast Training via ZOOM

 

ABOUT THE COURSE

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.

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.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The course is intended for Engineers, Operations’ managers, Applied Scientists and Technologists interested in design & structure under blast loading. Engineers, managers and scientists involved in design, assessment and management of a wide range of engineering structures will also benefit from this course.

COURSE MATERIAL:

The lecture notes will be sent in advance at least 1 week before the course starts.

LECTURE CONTENT

Lecture 1: Effects of blast loading on material characteristics. This lecture begins with an overview of the blast effects on structures. The lecture then proceeds with detailed discussion on the blast loads. The Principle of the scaling law, blast profile is introduced. Material behaviour of structural members at high strain rate will be covered

Lecture 2: Blast response analysis using closed form, approximated simplified methods. This lecture deals with the calculation of the blast response of structures using simplified methods, namely single-degree-of-free (SDOF) method for the overall response predictions; analysis of element response using energy method; analysis of element response using equivalent SDOF method.

Lecture 3: Numerical modelling for the analysis of structures under blast and pressure impulse diagrams. This lecture deals with the analysis of the blast response using numerical simulation approach. The way to assess the structural response and human response using Iso-Damage diagrams (Pressure-Impulse diagrams) will also be covered.

Lecture 4: Codified Design examples for blast resistant structures. The detailed example of Design of element in steel or reinforced concrete under blast will be demonstrated.

Lecture 5: Basic knowledge of fire. This lecture provides an overview of fire science and fire safety engineering in order to set the subsequent material in its proper context. The fundamentals of heat transfer, including conduction, convection and radiation, are introduced, as an understanding of these is central to any fire safety design.

Lecture 6: Mechanical properties of steel and concrete under elevated temperatures. These widespread structural materials suffer a marked degradation in their mechanical properties due to the action of a fire. The focus will be on steel, as it is particularly susceptible to thermal attack and requires carefully fire protection.

Lecture 7: Fire safety design for buildings. Give an introduction to prescriptive design for steel according to EN 1993-1-2. Detailed fire safety design knowledge, such as compartmentation, and evacuation route design.

Lecture 8: Modelling technique for structural fire analysis. This lecture will focus on the effective way to model the behaviour of the structure under fire. Different modelling techniques and software such as Ozone, CFAST will be introduced.
