Blast and Fragment Impacts: Strengthening of reinforced concrete structures
Research Project , 2018 – 2021

The aim of the project is to develop experimental research methodology and numerical methods for dynamically loaded reinforced concrete structures. An important part of the project is the development of experimental data in able to verify, validate and calibrate numerical tools. Another important part is utilization of the research results, for example by producing calculation instructions for active engineers.
