Extreme Loads on Structures Lab (ELSL)

Hezi Grisaro's Research Group

Welcome to the Extreme Loads on Structures Lab (ELSL), Dr. Hezi Grisaro's research group.

Dr. Grisaro is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, a researcher at the National Building Research Institute, and the head of the Extreme Loads on Structures Lab (ELSL).

Our research group primarily focuses on the behavior and design of structures under extreme loads. Much interest has been given to the effects of blast and impact loads on structures.

We develop computational models to better understand the dynamics of structures and structural damage, and develop solutions based on analytical and numerical tools.

 

Main research areas:

  • Analysis and design of structures subjected to blast and impact loadings
  • Quantification and characterization of blast and fragmentation load
  • Design and analysis of RC structures

We got two research grants to study the global behavior of structural elements under close-in detonations based on fast-running tools and relatively simple but accurate methods. Current design standards (e.g. CSA S850-12, ASCE/SEI 59-11, UFC 3-340-02, and others) suggest using nonlinear equivalent SDOF systems to study the global response of structural elements to blast loads.…

We presented our research at the 6th International Conference of Protective Structures (ICPS6) which was held last week at Auburn University, Alabama, in the United States. Dr. Hezi Grisaro presented an overview of a project on the response of wide-flange steel sections under close-in detonations, which was done together with Prof. Jeff Packer and Michael…
