Wilfred E. Baker is widely known for his work on air blast phenomenology, the reaction of structures to air blast and other transient loading, physical modeling in engineering dynamics, hazards evaluations, and design of structures to resist explosion effects. He was associated with the Ballistic Research Laboratories, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. for 12 years. Since joining SwRI, he has performed research and directed projects in dynamic modeling, spherical shell dynamics, blast effects on moving missiles, explosion containment, comparison of air and internal damping of thin beams an helicopter blades, weapons' blast effects on helicopter structures, blast and fragmentation effects, hazards in industrial accidents, and blast-and fragment-resistant structural design. He is the author of Explosions in Air, a coauthor of Similarity Methods in Engineering Dynamics, Explosion Hazards and Evaluation, and a coathor of handbooks on explosives effects, explosive safety, explosions hazards evaluation, target vulnerability, and prediction of blast and fragment loadings on structures.
