An example is included in which a precast concrete panel is designed to resist a blast load. The concrete and steel structure design principal will be illustrated to select the suitable structure system. Design of Blast-Resistant Buildings in Petrochemcial Faciltities.
What architects need to know to meet federal blast-resistance requirements. Design guide for blast resistant structures. Residential-Commercial Housing. However, there is limited guidance available in the literature on the direct application of established blast effects principals to structural design. The windows are designed to provide light and ventilation, while protecting the occupants against ballistic attack. Resistant Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures By Dennis. These standards are not isolated to security protocols, but to the requirements for the way these buildings are design. Reinforced concrete can provide substantial protection from even extreme blast loading.
