Abstract : This report contains proceedings of unclassified presentations at the symposium. The presentations covered the following broad topic areas: material behavior, constitutive equations (soil, concrete, metal, rock), blast-structure interaction (near field, far field, soil, air), structural response (blast effects, kinetic energy, above and below ground), failure analysis of components and systems, impact and penetration, scale modeling technique design and construction details, equipment features (blast doors, blast valves, shock isolation), and fragmentation effects and air blast-fragment synergism. Keywords: International symposium; Blast effects; Fragmentation; Non-nuclear munitions; Equipment; Impact; Penetration; Structures; Material behavior; Failure analysis; Scale modeling.
