Analysis and Assessment of RC Structures Exposed to Explosions

COURSE NO: S01-012
Analysis and Assessment of RC Structures Exposed to Explosions
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses how to accurately assess existing concrete buildings exposed to blast loading.


This course provides engineers with the required technical data which enables them to take the right decision, if a structure must be retrofitted or not, and by identifying when these deficiencies will lead to building collapse and when they will not. Lastly, it covers how to do progressive collapse analysis to accurately evaluate the structure.


This 1 PDH online course is intended for civil and structural engineers interested in gaining a better understanding of how to perform analysis and assessment of RC structures exposed to explosions.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills.

  •  Familiarizing with the technical data required to determine whether a structure must be retrofitted or not.
  • Learning about the protective design for blast-resistant structures
  • Learning how to perform progressive collapse analysis to know whether a building will collapse due to blast loading effects
