The Protective Technology Research Centre (PTRC) was established on 29 September 1998 via the Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
Hosted in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Centre provides the necessary focus for joint R&D efforts in dynamics and protective engineering.
The R&D capabilities of PTRC are:
- Rock Engineering and Cavern Technology
- Response of Structures to Dynamic Loading
- Soft Ground/Soil Engineering
- Modelling and Simulation for Earth Covered Magazines
