  Protecting people and structures is the mission of our blast engineering professionals. Devastating terrorist attacks worldwide underscore the importance of protecting these critical assets from a broad spectrum of extreme events. WJE professionals understand threats created by intentional acts as well as accidental explosions and have specialized expertise in the design and analysis for blast and weapons effects. Knowing that flying debris causes most blast injuries to building occupants, we can develop designs that mitigate these effects. Our in-depth knowledge of materials behavior and our analytical capabilities enable us to develop blast designs that minimize damage and prevent progressive collapse. We offer highly advanced nonlinear analysis capabilities, including LS-DYNA, to accurately simulate the response of structural and architectural systems to blast loads. To better meet your damage mitigation expectations, our blast experts use state-of-the-art technologies, including fiber reinforced polymers (FRP), to design practical and aesthetic solutions for blast and impact loads.
