Abstract:

An extensive Hazard Division HD 1.2 open-air testing program has been recently completed. In addition, in-structure effects have been examined by both the United States and the United Kingdom. The results of these programs and a literature survey form the basis for proposed changes to both the U.S. rules as well as to UKNATO advice. This paper will describe these proposed new rules and compare them with the currently existing criteria.
