Explosion protection will be the topic of Professor Genevieve Langdon’s Inaugural Lecture.

Langdon is deputy head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and director of the Blast Impact & Survivability Research Unit (BISRU).

Explosions often make headlines because they can cause devastating loss of life and damage. Langdon’s work aims to save lives through improved protection and by reducing the environmental impact of blast-protection systems.

In her lecture, titled “Explosion Protection: Reality or Fantasy”, she will talk about the reality of explosions, different types of explosions and how we can protect ourselves against them.

This public event will be held on Tuesday, 12 September, at 17:30 in Lecture Theatre 1 in the Snape Building on upper campus. To attend, please reply online by 10 September. For enquiries, please email or phone 021 650 3730.
