10th Resistance of Structures against Explosion effects TG meeting

Resistance of Structures to Explosion Effects

The TG discussed its present working plan and possible steps for the next year's activity. Two new sub-groups were established:

1. the first for experimental methods concerning the analysis of existing standards for shock-tube and HE experiments regarding: mounting, loading conditions, measurement technique, result interpretation, definition of gaps – leading to good practice and more practical testing procedures for implementation into standards

2. the second for numerical simulation defining the current best practice for numerical simulations for blast loaded laminated glass and open gap in research concerning blast loaded laminated glass in order to support research calls in the future.
