Technical Scope

Scientists, engineers, consultants and other people interested or working in the fields of blast and shock wave research and associated thermal effects are invited to participate and contribute to the MABS Symposia.

The main areas of interest are:

  • Blast and shock phenomena in air, ground and water
  • Explosive event simulation, e.g. shock tubes, explosive charges, blast simulators, innovative loading devices as well as computational and analytical methods
  • Modeling and scaling
  • Measurement and signal processing techniques
  • Experimental validation of numerical codes
  • Target response prediction and analysis
  • Thermal radiation effects, instrumentation, and simulator developments
  • Accident and catastrophe damage analysis
  • Protection measures related to blast phenomena
  • Blast induced TBI
