This book provides a brief overview of worldwide terrorist activity and reviews technologies and methods for designing blast resistant buildings. These techniques, primarily developed by the military, have applicability and relevance to the design of civilian structures. The volume recommends that a program of applied research and technology transfer be undertaken to hasten the availability and utility of these techniques to the civilian building community.It is intended to be used in conjunction with other structural design manuals and provides a comprehensive listing of ... limitload theory, simplified dynamic analysis procedures, and design procedures for structures as well as equipment.
