Abstract:

The report evaluates various existing blast-resistant door designs and then selects the optimum door designs for the door sizes, types, and blast pressure ratings specified in the contract, taking into consideration economy, ease of manufacture from standard available materials, reliability of operation, and a minimum amount of maintenance. From the optimum door designs complete drawings and specifications were prepared suitable for competitive bidding and manufacture. This report summarizes the results of the Interim Blast Door Study 2 which included detailed preliminary design calculations, sketches, and comparisons.
