Pagination or Media Count:
Experimental results for input shock overpressure of 5 psi are shown for differential loading on the exterior walls of a shelter model with a single front entrance. Further results are shown for a basement shelter model, where it is assumed that the top floor structure is blown away and the blast wave enters the basement from above. Air velocities and dynamic pressures are given for the interior of the model.
