Re: How to design concrete wall to resist blast pressure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sunil,

Please buy the following publications:
1. Design of Blast Resistant Buildings in Petrochemical Facilities, ASCE
2. Structural Design for Physical Security, ASCE

Also, you may want to attend a Seminar, organized by ASCE, on the subject. You can obtain information on the publications and the seminar from ASCE web site.

We have to design a cantilevered reinforced concrete wall to resist blast loading.  The wall is essentially a screen between a building and the source of blast.  Are there design criteria (i) to estimate the blast pressures on the wall and (ii) to design the wall for the blast load?
