Working as Normal

By Comments Off on Working as Normal

We may have changed a few practices to allow the majority of staff to work remotely, however we are still able to provide full consulting engineering services at this time with the exception of site visits.

We hope to re-open the testing range to Clients shortly, but continue to provide closed door testing.

For all enquiries, please still contact us at p1@djgoode.co.uk or call 01284 827472

Blast and Ballistic Protection Design Course (4 days)

By Comments Off on Blast and Ballistic Protection Design Course (4 days)


A unique opportunity to combine theoretical studies with practical demonstrations.

28th – 31st October 2019

It is an unfortunate truth of our modern world that there is a need to protect personnel from the hazards of explosive or ballistic attacks. This four-day course provides an introduction to the techniques required to design buildings to protect their occupants from blast or ballistic hazards resulting from either terrorist attack or accidental explosion.

Course content:

  • Introduction to the principles of blast and ballistic design
  • Blast design for structures constructed from concrete, steel, aluminium and glass
  • Use of dynamic design tools ranging from design guides to complex finite element modelling
  • Design of structures to resist ballistic threats including fragmentation and small arms
  • Blast and ballistic testing of components
  • Practical demonstrations of explosive and ballistic effects.

This course combines classroom sessions, workshops and practical demonstrations of explosive and ballistic effects. This considerably enhances the learning experience for the participants.

The course will be presented by experienced trainers from D.J. Goode & Associates Ltd. and DNV GL at the DGA Offices at Lavenham Airfield.

The Cost  of the Course is £3,250 + VAT including lunch and all training materials.

25 Years of Success

By Comments Off on 25 Years of Success

 IMG_20190411_2  We are extremely proud to announce that we have recently celebrated our 25 year anniversary!

Over this time we have continued to grow and develop into a number of interesting fields, whilst maintaining our strong focus on providing design and testing advice with respect to counter terrorism measures. We have been fortunate enough to work with some fantastic engineers and clients over this time and we continue to aspire to provide solutions to a range of technical problems.

We are also proud to announce that Mark has now been appointed as Managing Director and David E and George have both been appointed as Directors with David G becoming Chairman.

External RangeWith an ever growing number of engineers joining our team we are pleased to announce that our upward growth is continuing and our test facility has also grown with the successful development of a shock tube to test blast valves and the destructive testing of commercial heat exchangers. We are also in the process of developing a new gas gun to test high energy projectiles.

We celebrated our 25th year in style, at Shimpling Park Barns, with a fantastic Led Zeppelin tribute act, food from Bouquet Garni and drinks from Nethergate Wines.

A huge thank you must go out to the team who busily set up the venue for us all, thank you Patrick, Jo and Dorina for your hard work.

Here’s to another 25 years!

All the best,

The team at DGA
