Blast-resistant glass structures are crucial for safeguarding lives, protecting property, and ensuring the continued operation of critical facilities in environments where explosions or blasts are a potential threat.

Over the 3.5 hours, this webinar will explore:

1. Performance of glass structures under blast
2. Key performance indicators and standards
3. Material properties and reference setup for experimental protocols
4. Computational methods in support of design
5. Refined FEM calculation tools vs. simplified tools


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).

Good lecturer explaining very well and using a marker to emphasize certain parameters,

I gained a good insight in glass facade modelling techniques for blast loads.

The lecturer had deep knowledge of the matter and managed to explain everything very clearly.
