Impact Loading of Lightweight Structures

This book features contributions from the International Conference on Impact Loading of Lightweight Structures. The topics covered are all relevant to the behaviour of Lightweight Structures subjected to various dynamic loads. Many leading researchers, from all over the world, contributed to this conference with articles on material characterisation, structural failure and crashworthiness, energy absorbing systems, experimental techniques, theoretical models and numerical analysis, each providing information on the design of modern, lightweight structures and contributing to a safer world.
