A multi-hazard protective jacket for structural members

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


As the importance of protective engineering and multi-hazard mitigation design has been made apparent in recent years, the development of an effective structural protection system that aids in the preservation of life safety during blast events is an important topic of research in structural engineering. Based on prior research, the authors propose the development of a protective jacket consisting of a thick layer of water sandwiched between two thin layers of polyethylene film or a similar polymer membrane, which can be wrapped around or affixed to the vulnerable structural elements.
