Steel Under Severe High Impact

In order to properly design critical infrastructures and buildings in steel or reinforced concrete certain requirements concerning to mechanical resistance and robustness under exceptional actions have to be fulfilled. An acceptable level of safety must be assured to avoid human losses, environmental pollution and material damage. These structures can be subjected to severe accidental loading such as blast or impact. The goal of SUSHI project is to test large infrastructures made of different steel materials.
