Barr A, Clarke SD, Fuller B (2016). Compression of Hesco MIL2 units with sand and gravel fills.
Fuller B, Rigby SE, Tyas A, Clarke SD, Fay SD, Reay JJ, Warren JA, Elgy I (2015). Effect of Spatial Variation of Blast Loading on Response of Plates. (Full Text)., Abstract: Burying a high explosive in soil is known to confine the detonation products and focuses the blast in the vertical direction. The expanding detonation products and soil particle barrage will therefore impart a highly non-uniform spatial distribution of pressure on a target situated above the...
Clarke SD, Fay SD, Rigby SE, Tyas A, Warren JA, Reay JJ, Fuller B, Pope DJ, Gant M, Elgy I (2015). Finite element simulation of plates under non-uniform blast loads using a point-load method: Buried explosives. (Full Text)., Abstract: There are two primary challenges associated with assessing the adequacy of a protective structure to resist explosive events: firstly the spatial variation of load acting on a target must be predicted to a sufficient level of accuracy; secondly, the response of the target to this load must also be...
