Blast effects on buildings: Design of buildings to optimize resistance to blast loading
Thomas Telford Publications | English | ISBN 0727720309 | 516 pages | PDF | 11.66 MB | 1995
This book is aimed at all engineers and architects involved in the design of building structures, and should enable them to have a better understanding of their own and their client's responsibilities in providing buildings which, in the event of an explosion, minimize damage to people and property.
Following this introduction putting the subject in context, the book starts with some basic guidelines for enhancing the resilience of buildings to blast loading (Chapter 2). An explanation of the nature of explosions and the mechanism of blast waves in free air is then given. This leads to a discussion of the loading that explosions place on structures, both inside and out, and the concept of an idealized loading is introduced (Chapter 3). The response of buildings, people and equipment to blast loading is illustrated. A method of analysis is suggested whereby the strain energy absorbed is equated to the work done or kinetic energy imparted and the structure reduced to a single degree of freedom (Chapter 4).
