Material tests and non-destructive research

Project Details


The objective of this project is the study of the energy absorption capacity of composite structures that are capable of dissipating the energy of an explosion by stable and progressive failing and as such of protecting the critical structural members (columns, bridge pillars, walls, ...) of civil engineering structures.
