Blast Engineering

Many specialist structures are required to be blast resistant in the case of an explosion. Typical examples include buildings in close proximity to large petrochemical facilities, offshore facilities, and high security risk infrastructure.

Due to the short duration and dynamic nature of a blast event, materials and structures behave differently compared to longer duration loads such as wind and earthquakes. These factors require a specialised design approach. Our team has strong expertise in designing new and upgraded structures for a range of blast over-pressures.
