RE: Design of blast doors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I presume that you were aware that the UFC 3-340-02 replaced the TM 5-1300 in 2008, but a lot of the old TM 5-1300 information was retained.  
 
For your particular problem, reference UFC 3-340-02:
  Section 5-36.6.2
  Example in Chapter 15
  Figure 5-18
  Example 5A-7.
