The Stress Strain Curve is one of the most important tools in Structural Engineering. Every solid material has it’s own unique stress-strain curve. By understanding how to interpret the curve it can provide insights into how to better design products to survive loading.
More structures are requiring blast resistance than ever before. Blast resistance allows a structure to withstand an explosion while keeping occupants safe. Terrorist threats have been increasing the demand to design critical structures, landmarks, and even personal bunkers for blast resistance.
