Many researchers are actively involved in the study of shock and impact behaviour of structures. There is therefore a continual need for a forum where they can exchange information and ideas on blast loading of structures, penetration mechanics, collision mechanics and the high speed straining of materials. The Structures under Shock and Impact (SUSI) series of conferences have formed a highly successful response to this need. This book contains most of the papers presented at the fifth Structures under Shock and Impact (SUSI) conference which was held at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece in June 1998. The papers included reflect a broad range of applications and are divided under the following headings: Structures under Blast and Explosive Shock, Buried Structures under Explosions, Structural Crashworthiness and Energy Absorbing Systems, Dynamic Behaviour of Structures, Full and Scale-Model Testing, Interaction between Analytical and Experimental Research, Seismic Engineering Applications, Material Response to High Rate Loading, Behaviour of Steel and Composite Structures, and Behaviour of Concrete Material and Structures.
