Blast and Impact Loading and Response of Structures
Full Session with Abstracts
After the design criteria and tool presentations, a 15-minute interactive discussion between the audience and presenters will be moderated to allow the audience to directly ask the design criteria authors and tool developers questions about their application and implementation. The goal of the discussion is to gather feedback from the audience on how these current criteria and tools are being used on current or new projects and to create an open dialogue with the audience on what blast design tools are still needed to support better support the bridge design community. Come prepared with questions and input from past project experience to share with the group at large to improve our ability as a design community to create resilient structures.
