K&C provides a unique and highly technical set of skills as consultants by providing engineering services for the design and analysis of structural and mechanical systems subjected to blast and shock effects.
Our firm, although small, has extraordinary depth in blast effects design, research and development, testing, and field engineering. Many of the principals at K&C have personally advanced the state-of-the-art in blast effects design and analysis technologies, as indicated by the patents issued to them, the number of design manuals and guides authored, and the software design tools produced. We are a highly technological firm, but we are also practical and cost-effective in the way we support our clients' design needs during project development and construction. The skills of the Karagozian & Case engineering staff are focused in five complementary areas:
Design/Analysis relating to Blast, Shock, and Impact Loads
K&C specializes in engineering design that reduces the threat and effects from blast loads, high-velocity impacts (e.g., from vehicles and bullets), and shock loads. K&C also offers validation testing of existing blast and impact resistant designs, and advanced computational structural dynamics analysis that simulates the actual responses that occur in blast and impact events. Design threats include terrorist bombings, accidental explosions, and high velocity impacts. In addition, for over four decades, K&C has provided designs and performed blast effects tests of hardened military structures to resist damage from both conventional and nuclear weapons. We have designed numerous test fixtures and test specimens for blast and shock effects tests. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
