Design of hardened structures to resist the effects of accidental explosions must comply with specific criteria defined in Department of Defense explosive safety regulations, DoD 6055.9.Std. The implementation these criteria in structural design were first formalized in 1969 in the Tri-Service Design Manual, Structures to Resist the Effects of Accidental Explosions TM 5-1300, NAVFAC P-397, AFM 88-22. This manual has been under revision for several years and the status of that revision effort has been reported at previous DDESB Seminars. The Manual is now officially released and available for government and public use. This paper summarize and highlights significant changes from the original manual and discusses the availability of both the hardcopy and microcomputer software version.
