Mechanisms & Characterisation of Explosions
The overall aim of MaCE is to develop a comprehensive conceptual model of blast loading which will serve to underpin accurate predictive models for protection engineers.
This will be achieved by conducting experimental work which for the first time fully integrates blast pressure measurements with thermo-chemical analysis to determine how energy is released following a detonation, and how this affects the parameters of resulting blast waves.
