Blast & Explosion Analysis

Using Extreme Loading® for Structures software, structural engineers can analyze a structure subjected to blast loads allowing them to visualize how the building, or different structural components inside the building, will behave under the prescribed conditions. Moreover, because ELS is based on the Applied Element Method (AEM), engineers can visualize the after-blast  effect of the resultant debris and its effect on other structural components, creating a “true damage” picture of the occurrence.
