Abstract:

Procedures for structures designed to resist the effects of HE type explosions are presently available in the Tri-Service Design Manual Structures to Resist the Effects of Accidental Explosions TM 5-1300, NAVFAC P-397, AFM 88- 22. However, these procedures are limited to reinforced concrete structures. Since its original publication, a considerable amount of data has been generated which brought about the requirement to revise existing procedures in the manual and incorporate new data. This describes the differences between the old and new manual and discusses the additional data incorporated in the new manual.
