This course provides a background on explosive materials and their reduction to equivalent pounds of TNT. The major blast parameters, namely initial overpressure and duration are then calculated. This data is then used to figure displacement of an SDOF (Single Degree of Freedom) system, used three different models. A concrete beam example provides insight and clarification of the material covered.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
