Glass Structures Under Blast
This webinar will be split into two parts over two afternoon sessions. Attendees are able to attend both parts, or just one part if they would prefer.
Part 1: this webinar will explore the mechanical performance and computational tools for glass structures under blast events. The material, as known, is largely used in buildings but typically characterized by brittle behaviour in tension. As such, glass components are the most vulnerable for building occupants. The presentation will address some key aspects on the side of material characterization, simulation setup, and computational methods in support of design.
Part 2: A more detailed discussion will follow after "part 1", with a focus on the design and analysis of existing or new windows. Simple and more refined calculation tools will be explored.
Chiara is Assistant Professor at University of Trieste, Department of Engineering and Architecture (Italy), where she chairs the course of 'Structural Analysis'. PhD degree in 2012, her research activity is mostly focused on the analysis of structural glass solutions, including experimental investigations, the definition of analytical formulations in support of design, or the refined numerical analysis of glass / hybrid systems. Since 2009, she is involved in various European or international projects and networks (JRC-ERNCIP, NATO-SPS, COST, etc.), most of them related to glass structures under extreme loads such as explosions, fire events or earthquakes. Editor-in-Chief for the open access International Journal of Structural Glass and Advanced Materials Research. Co-author of several scientific papers and book chapters, she contributed to the definition of various technical documents and guidelines. Among others, the Italian CNR-DT 210 technical document for the design and verification of structural glass members (with a focus on buckling-related issues).
Attendance certificates are available on request after the completion of the webinar.
