Abstract:

This report presents design procedures and the computer program written to implement them for determining the gross motions of protective structures subjected to blast effects of high explosive detonations. These procedures are intended to supplement the design methods of the tri-service design manual Structures to Resist the Effects of Accidental Explosions TM 5- 1300. The material presented includes dynamic analysis techniques for determining the gross motions of the structure on its supporting soil, methods for computing the time history of the blast load on the structure, and criteria and procedures for designing the foundation of the structure. A system of classification of various soils is given together with a tabulation of critical soil properties. Documentation of the computer program is provided by means of descriptions of the required input parameters, definitive illustrations of the coded input card formats, illustrations of input deck structures, the FORTRAN listing for the CDC 6600 computer, and sample problems.
