This report provides guidance when designing or evaluating buildings for blast resistance once the blast loading has been defined for a postulated explosion scenario at a petroleum or chemical processing plant. The 13 chapters compare the different dynamic response analysis methods, identify doors and windows that can withstand a blast, and recommend upgrades for structural member connections, framing members, concrete walls, and roof systems. Three case studies calculate the blast load and dynamic properties of exterior walls, roof slabs, wall panels, roof girders, metal decking, columns, rigid frames, braced frames, and foundations.
