6/4/2014Nanni 11 SAS Safety of Airport Structures Conclusions: Project consisted of complex design of a civil structure taking into account unusual requirements; Unconventional dynamic load scenario was considered and specific mechanical tests were performed; Optimization of the system was conducted considering installation and maintenance requirements; Numerical analysis and lab tests were carried out in order to verify radio-transparency properties of system;
6/4/2014Nanni 12 SAS Safety of Airport Structures Conclusions (cont.): Blast characterization of the structure was performed through numerical analysis and field test; Project focused on defining a protocol with input from owner, engineer, researcher, and material supplier and manufacturer; Field demonstration confirmed the success of the project; and, This experience can be replicated for similar endeavors related to security problems.
