HIGH SPEED IMAGING METHODS IN EXPLOSIVES ENGINEERING (SPRING 2017)

Graduate students at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (MS&T) pursuing a Masters or Doctorate Degreee in Explosives Engineering may earn credit towards their degree by taking Dong Distance Learning courses that are offered as part of MS&T's collaboration with the Colorado School of Mines (CSM). AXPRO is excited to be able to offer these specialized courses, which include practical training in industry applications of explosives and experimentation in instrumentation methods.

Dr. Vilem Petr and Dr. Paul Worsey have begun a collaboration to a teach a course on High-Speed Imaging Methods at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. A wide range of material will be covered, including: detonation and shock-wave physics, an introduction into high-speed imaging, lighting and selecting lenses for best results, triggering strategies, and the analysis of high-speed imagry.

The current scheduled class dates are: March 27 - 31, 2017. THe course will be held on campus at the Colorado School of Mines, inside Brown Building, Room 125.

Accommodations for Currently Registered Students

It is highly suggested that hotel reservations be made in advance.

We have set aside a number of rooms for MS&T students at the Holiday Inn at 17140 W Colfax Ave. in Golden, Colorado. These rooms are available at a discounted rate, and pre-booked for your convience.

SPECIAL EXPLOSIVES APPLICATIONS (SPRING 2018)

Dr. Petr was invited to teach a course on the Special Explosives Applications at the Missouri University of Science and Technology’s (MS&T) Explosive Engineering department in Spring 2018. This course was launched last year, Spring 2016, and has been well accepted. The first part of the course will be held at the Explosive Research Laboratory (ERL) in Idaho Springs, CO and the second part will be offered through a distance learning program at MS&T. The financial support from this course will be used to improve future distance learning courses. This course will teach advanced theory and special application of explosives for topics other rock excavation. Students will be introduced to different industrial, military, and government special uses such as avalanche control, explosive welding, forming, synthesis and hardening, aerospace, forest service, agriculture and oil industry applications.
