Of interest to engineers from civil, military, nuclear, offshore, aeronautical, transportation and other backgrounds, this book contains the proceedings of a well-established conference on the subject that was first held in 1989. Topics covered include: Impact and Blast Loading; Energy Absorbing Issues; Interaction between Computational and Experimental Results; Aeronautical and Aerospace Applications; Response of Reinforced Concrete under Impact; Response of Building Façade and Components to Blast and Impact Load; Seismic Behaviour; Structural Crashworthiness; Nonlinear Numerical Analysis.
The shock and impact behaviour of structures presents challenges to researchers not only because it has obvious time-dependent aspects, but also because it is difficult to specify the external dynamic loading characteristics and to obtain the full dynamic properties of materials. It is crucial that we find ways to share the contributions and understanding that are developing from various theoretical, numerical and experimental studies, as well as investigations into material properties under dynamic loading conditions. This book helps to meet that need.
