Within a few days this spring, 30 blast loads detonated inside one of the Norwegian Defence Agency’s test facilities. Behind the destruction lies CASA and NDEA’s shared goal to understand more of what happens during close-range blasts in confined spaces.
Associate Professor Vegard Aune´s research evolves around severe blast loading events. At the 13th International DYMAT conference recently, he shared new insight on the underlying physics of extreme blast-structure interaction. Read about it – and watch the video on coupled simulation.
