PEC’s Tim Brewer is attending and presenting at the 2nd International Conference on Structural and Safety under Fire and Blast Loading (CONFAB) 2017 this week at Brunel University in London, England. The aim of the conference is to provide an international forum to bring leading researchers in the field of fire and blast threats caused by natural and man-made hazards together to disseminate knowledge, obtain feedback on research, and provide a networking opportunity for students, researchers, and practitioners to facilitate collaboration. The long-term conference goal is to contribute in leading to a safer and more resilient built environment as well as enhanced safety in industrial environments, both on and off-shore. Catch his presentation today, Monday, September 11th on Modeling & Assessment of Tunnels Subject to Near-Contact Explosive Effects.
