Confinedblast Software User Manual
This report is a user manual for the ConfinedBlast software tool. ConfinedBlast is a user interface that allows the user to input problems to be analyzed using SHOCK, FRANG, or MUDEMIMP. All three programs analyze different effects resulting from a confined explosion. This manual provides general descriptions of all three of these programs within ConfinedBlast, step by step guidance on how to input data, guidance on interpreting the output data, and example problems for each program. NAVFAC EXWCs verification analysis of the results of each program concludes that the use of ConfinedBlast software produces confined blast effects predictions that are generally conservative and appropriate for use in the design and analysis of facilities intended for protective construction.
