Abstract : This report, in six volumes, details design procedures for structures which are subjected to the effects of accidential explosions. The procedures cover the determination of the blast environment (blast and fragments) and then structural design. This volume, Special Considerations in Explosive Facility Design, in particular, contains procedures for the design of blast-resistant structures other than above ground, cast-in-place concrete or structural steel structures, as well as the design of other miscellaneous blast-resistant components. Included in this volume are the design of reinforced and nonreinforced masonry walls, precast elements both prestressed and conventionally reinforced, pre-engineered buildings, suppressive shielding, blast resistant windows, underground structures, earth covered, arch-type magazines, blast valves, and shock isolation systems.
