Blast and Impact Dynamics

Concrete damage after missile impact

Extensive experimental and analytical facilities exist for research into various aspects of blast and impact.

The unique CEDUS explosive and hazards testing laboratory, at Buxton, is dedicated to research on high velocity impact and explosive blast loading effects on structures and materials.

This laboratory provides testing at strain rates up to 1000/sec, and measurement of structural response at rapid rates of deformation, using high-speed photography, pulse radiography and a variety of strain- and pressure-measuring devices with high speed data recording.
