Abstract: Deployable Protective Structure (DPS) is proposed as a type of structure which is designed to meet the requirements for civilian or military facilities in which both mobility and protection against extreme loadings are the main concerns. The DPS combines the technology associated with deployable structures and protective structures to provide multi-functional uses in extreme environment. They are capable of large geometric transformation and are designed to protect against accidental or intentional explosions and attacks by explosive devices, ballistic weapons and vehicle crash. Three types of Deployable Protective Shelters (DPSh) in terms of various accommodation sizes and a Deployable Vehicle Crash Barrier (DVCB) system are developed and investigated in this thesis. The development of DPS involves conceptual development, protective material properties, structural robustness against blast and impact. The developed DPSs are investigated under view of interdisciplinary technologies and knowledge such as structural engineering, mechanical engineering and architecture, and material science disciplines.
