Title: Design of Blast Resistant Construction for Atomic Explosions
Author(s): C. S. Whitney, B. G. Anderson and E. Cohen
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 589-683
Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Methods and principles used in designing the fust full scale blast resistant structures tested at Eniwetok are presented and the test results are cited in support of the procedures outlined. Economic and other practical considera-tions are discussed. Radiation hazards and methods of dealing with them arc described. Appendices are included which give detailed procedures for computing the blast loading, for designing individual structural elements and single and multistory buildings in both the elastic and plastic range for this loading, for computing ultimate strength of structural elements and frames under rapid loading, and for dealing with some special problems.
