The dynamics of shock, impact and explosions are an important consideration in the design of structures. This book provides a detailed and illustrated study of structural dynamics of almost all types of shocks, impacts and explosions. After a comprehensive survey of accidents and explosions, the author covers all areas of basic structural dynamics and provides a full treatment of impact dynamics. Two chapters are devoted to a detailed analysis and numerical modelling for explosions occurring in air underground and underwater as well as formulations for the finite element analysis of shock impact and explosion. The last part of the book deals with many detailed case studies on structures of numerous materials like steel, composites, and concrete structures. Shock, Impact and Explosion is devoted to research and practising engineers, designers, technologists, mathematician and specialists in computer-aided techniques.
