Chris Wright and Harold Sprague already gave excellent advice in response to
this request. I'll just add that there is a fairly good overview paper
available in the Proceedings of the 2001 SEI Conference: "Behavior of Steel
Structures Subjected to Blast Loading", by Rittenhouse, DiMaggio and
Ettouney. I presume ASCE will sell you a copy if you do not already have
these Proceedings.
