Abstract:

A computer program was developed to determine the nonlinear dynamic response of reinforced concrete slabs subjected to blast pressure loading. Given the explosive parameters and geometry of the slab, the program computes the blast environment and the structural resistance, mass, and stiffness of the slab and solves for the dynamic response. The program will assist engineers in the design and analysis of facilities intended to contain the effects of accidential explosions. The report gives a users guide and sample problems with data input and program output.
