Abstract : An ultimate load theory is combined with an idealized dynamic theory to form a computational program for the development of a set of design charts for reinforced concrete beams. The behavior of beams under blast loading is reviewed to aid in the explanation of the computational program and the charts. A procedure for the treatment of shear and bond is presented; the design curves are given and exemplified; and their limitations are discussed. (Author)
