Boom Goes the Dynamite with Lauren Stewart

In 2018, Atlanta's Georgia Dome was demolished to make room for a new NFL stadium for the Atlanta Falcons. Merely destroying a massive structure with explosives is not as easy as it sounds – a safe and effective demolition requires engineering know-how. Dr. Lauren Stewart is an assistant professor in the School of Civil, Environmental Engineering and director of the Structural Engineering and Materials Laboratory and one of the leading experts on blast engineering in the country.
