Re: Blast Resistant Building Design for Blast Containment

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     I did a blast resistant room design for an airlines maintenance
building where the "blast" was for when a large hydraulic hose busted under
very high pressure.  I used a concrete "door" hinged from the top and the
moment of the door to dampen the force.

     The styrofoam sound like a good idea.  What about using CMU with half -
block openings (or something like that) so that the blast goes up through
the cells?
