To insure that full protection is afforded in the event of an explosion, modern day explosive-toxic facilities must be designed to fully contain the explosive output of a detonation. The design procedures necessary to achieve this structural containment are described additionally, several case studies are discussed in which these structural procedures were tested. These studies include both single- and multi-cell arrangements. This presentation was made at a seminar on Disaster Hazards sponsored by the Central States Section of the Combustion Institute at the Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, Texas on 7-8 April 1970.
