The focus of the Symposium is on phenomenology and
damage studies of shock and blast-related explosive events. It is
therefore imperative that presentations will either detail these events
or illustrate techniques for the simulation of their effects.
Simulations can consist of studies using explosive charges, shock
tubes, blast simulators, other loading devices, or computational and
Scientists, engineers, consultants and others who are interested in or
work in the fields of blast and shock wave research and associated
thermal effects are invited to contribute to and participate in MABS
Symposia. The MABS Symposia are held every second year in one of the
representative countries with a MABS Executive Committee (Canada, France, Germany, Israel, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and USA).
The military nature of the
event does not preclude the acceptance by organizing committee of
papers arising from non-military or natural catastrophe events.
Main Areas of Interest:
