Committee Mission: Develop and report information on the design of concrete structures subjected to blast, impact, and other short-duration dynamic loads.
Goals: 1) Collaborate with Committee 440 on guideline document addressing the use of FRP for retrofitting blast-loaded structures; 2) Develop technical sessions on response of concrete structures subjected to blast and impact; 3) Collaborate with Committee 447 on development of SP that includes papers addressing blind-prediction contest focusing on predicting the response of blast-loaded wall panels.
