Explosion testing of a smart element by EMI


  • Improve the security and resilience of large scale multifunctional building complexes to natural and made-disasters
  • Smart and reinforced building elements, to measure the actual buidling condition combined with an increased bearing capacity and resistance

Concept & Goals of smart elements

  • Concept: Sandwich-construction (inner core in r/c with protective layer in high performance concrete)

  • Goals:
    • Increase of structural resistance of load bearing elements
    • Reduction of damage in case of extreme loadings
    • As low monetary effort as possible
    • Practicable in fabrication
    • Applicable with elements of WSN, easy integration of the sensors

Basic information about the Explosion testing of smart elements

  • Smart element as sandwich construction (reinforced conventional concrete + FR-UHPC)
  • Test under dynamic loads: explosion scenario of a car bomb/ suitcase bomb
  • Charge is located in the center of the smart element
  • After explosion test: Determination of the residual load bearing capacity
