Naito, Ph.D., P.E.Associate Professor and Associate ChairDepartment of Civil and Environmental EngineeringLehigh University13 E Packer AveBethlehem, PA 18015 USAEmail: cjn3@lehigh.eduP:(610)758-6229 F:(610)758-5553, C:(484)239-8700 debris generated during tsunamis and hurricanes can impose substantialimpact forces on structures that are often not designed for such loads. Thispresentation covers the design and results of an experimental and theoretical programto quantify these potential impact forces. Two types of prototypical debris areconsidered: a wood log and a shipping container.Full-scale impact tests at Lehigh University were carried out with a wooden utilitypole and a shipping container. The tests were carried out in-air, and were designed toprovide baseline, full-scale results. A 1:5 scale shipping container model was usedfor in-water tests in the Oregon State University large wave flume. These tests wereused to quantify the effect of the fluid on the impact forces.Results from both experimental programs are presented and compared withtheoretical predictions. The analytical predictions are found to be in sufficientagreement such that they can be used for design. A fundamental takeaway is that theimpact forces are dominated by the structural impact, with a secondary affectprovided by the fluid.

Pag 4Development of a Blast and Ballistic Resistant InsulatedWall PanelPatrick TrasborgDepartment of Civil and Environmental EngineeringLehigh University13 E Packer AveBethlehem, PA 18015 USAP: 610-758-6254Email: pat310@lehigh.eduAbstractAccidental and intentional detonations of high explosives are an unfortunate realityfor not only military facilities, but any building. In the United States, designing forblast loads is required of all military and government structures. Additionally, therehas been a recent emphasis on constructing energy efficient, sustainable buildings.Insulated concrete wall panels can meet both requirements due to the blast resistanceof reinforced concrete and the thermal properties of the interior insulation layer. Thisresearch project focuses on improving the response of an insulated concrete panel toexplosions at both larger and small scaled distance, as well as the ballistic resistanceof the panel. Emphasis is placed on innovative, emulative reinforcement detailing toimprove far scale explosions, while shock resistant materials are utilized within theinsulation layer to improve small scale explosions and ballistic response. Static testsare conducted under both point and uniform loading to obtain resistance functions topredict the dynamic response of the insulated panel. Experimental, numerical, andanalytical results will be discussed.

Pag 6Flexural Models of Reinforced Concrete BeamsUnder Blast LoadFlavio Stochino, Ph.D., P.E.Department of Civil, Environmental Engineering and ArchitectureVia Marengo 2, University of Cagliari09123 Cagliari (CA) Italytel: +39 0706755410fax: +39 - fstochino@gmail.com flavio_stochinoFaculty of Architecture of the University of Sassari.Palazzo del Pou Salit, Piazza Duomo 6,07041 Alghero (SS), Italytel: +39079 9720403AbstractNowadays, the issue of structural safety under blast loading has become a dramaticproblem. The tragic news of the terrorist attacks of recent years raise important,urgent questions regarding the real safety and reliability of our buildings. Extremeloads such as impacts, explosions, etc., can occur in everyday life with unexpectedlyhigh frequency. This seminar deals with the flexural failure of Reinforced Concretebeams under blast loads. The main aim is to develop dynamic and energy modelscapable of evaluating the response of R.C. under explosive load. The seminar iscomposed of three sections. Various dynamic models are developed in Section 1,taking into account the strain-rate sensitivity of both steel and concrete, as well asother nonlinearities in structural behaviour. In Section 2, the same problem is solvedin a different way: starting from the principle of energy conservation. This procedure,less accurate than the previous one, produces very good results regarding midspandisplacement, especially as it requires less computation time. In order to betterunderstand the phenomenon, with the aim of identifying the key parameters instructural response, a sensitivity analysis is developed in Section 3. In this way it is

Doc. fellow at University of Sassari. He has defended hisPh.D. thesis “FLEXURAL MODELS OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMSUNDER BLAST LOAD” on March 25th 2013 at University of Cagliari. His researchdeals with extreme loads on structures and construction materials, in particular forwhat concerns energy interactions and relationship between the structuralperformance under seismic and blast loads. He’s interested in blast/impulsive loadingand fire design of R.C. structures, but also in structural optimization problems andmechanics of laminated structures. He has produced several papers for internationaljournals and he has participated and presented academic papers in severalinternational conferences. You can find more information on his profile
