This is a one-day course that covers the basics of blast theory and fundamentals of conducting a Threat Risk Assessment (TRA) to develop the Design-Basis Threat (DBT) in order to effectively apply Canadian Standard S850-12 Design and Assessment of Buildings Subjected to Blast Loads. The S850 Standard is intended for use by engineers and architects in the design of new buildings and the assessment of existing buildings to adequately mitigate the effects of blast threats. This is not an S850-specific course but the Standard is covered on the course as we show how and when to apply the basics of risk assessment, elementary blast theory, an understanding of explosives effects and applicable security principles.
