Shock & Vibration

Shock loads or suddenly-applied loads due to a blast or high velocity impact needs special consideration in the design of structures. CSIR-SERC has gained expertise over the years through analytical, computational, experimental and field investigations on the analysis and design of structures for shock loads. Research expertise under this area can be categorized into:

  • Blast-resistant design
  • Analysis and design of structures / structural components for enhanced impact resistance

Ongoing activities

  • Development of laced steel-concrete composite (LSCC) panels for blast-resistant structures
