Abstract:

This paper presents preliminary design criteria for frangible surfaces intended to break-up and blow-away quickly enough to limit the internal blast environment, structural damage and exterior debris hazard from explosions inside structures. The design criteria relate the critical design parameters of the structure, frangible surface and explosive to the internal loading -- in a format that facilitates the design of frangible covers and the prediction of internal blast loads.
