The response of structures and structural elements to explosive shock or high speed impact is of growing interest to scientists, research engineers and designers throughout the world. Attacks on civil and military buildings, bridges and transport vehicles by terrorists mean that more attention has to be given at the design stage to the effects of explosions and impact, and to high speed penetration of attack weapons. This book brings together the experience of specialists in the behaviour of concrete and metal structures, both above and below the ground, to actions of blast, penetration and high speed collisions. From the second international conference, ""Structures under shock and impact"", this volume is of world-wide interest, and will help to stimulate future research analysis.
