Design against blast loading

Structural typology: R&D PROJECTS
Date: June, 2011
Owner: Fhecor, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid y AENA
Scope: 3-year period (2008-2011)

This project is the result of an agreement signed between the Polytechnic University of Madrid and AENA in which FHECOR is collaborating with the UPM. This project has its origins in the destruction of Module D of the Terminal 4 car park at Barajas Airport during the brutal terrorist attack of December 30th, 2006.

The object of the project is to study possible design improvements in order to improve the robustness of structures subjected to the action of explosive loads.
