New Explosives Engineering Short Course: High Speed Imagery For Research And Experimentation

Source: Vision Research, Inc.

September 27 – September 30, 2016
Golden, Colorado School of Mines

World leaders in digital high-speed imaging and explosive education, Vision Research and the Colorado School of Mines, will once again collaborate on a university-level short course on high-speed imaging's wide range of applications with a focus on experimentation with explosives and ballistic applications.

The short course is a carefully structured introduction to main topics in the field of explosive engineering and how to best use digital high-speed imaging when conducting experiments or research for military or civilian applications.  Both the fundamentals theory and practical training will be conducted at Colorado School of Mines in Explosive Research Laboratory at Idaho Springs.

A wide range of material will be covered including: detonation and shock wave physics, selection of explosives, an introduction to high-speed imaging, scaling experiments for high-speed imaging, lighting and selecting lenses for the best results, triggering strategies, analysis of high-speed imagery, and more. Each topic will be presented by internationally renowned experts in their respective fields, and will address an audience spanning a wide range of scientific backgrounds.

Students will be given the opportunity to work one-on-one with instructors in special evening sections designed to participants work out solutions to their specific set of requirements for high-speed imagery.

The course is an intensive 4-day, hands-on workshop designed to teach engineers, scientists, and students the engineering tools needed to understand, analyze, and solve a broad range of dynamic problems and design applications. It also may also be of interest to crime and accident investigators, or anyone concerned with the regulatory and environmental issues involved in use of high-speed imaging and motion analysis in the fields.


The registration type(s) and fee(s) for the High Speed Imagery for Research and Experimentation Short Course are:

  • Regular Attendees - $2,495 (US) per person, and
  • Regular Attendees - On-Site registration will be $2,595 (US) per person.
