Abstract:
In this session, recent updates to blast design guidance will be presented. The session will focus on new criteria incorporated in “Structures to Resist the Effects of Accidental Explosions,” UFC 3-340-02, Change 1 (2014). These criteria include a major revision to the UFC’s analysis and design procedures for reinforced and unreinforced masonry walls and a new testing protocol and performance requirements for mechanical splices that will, for the first time, permit their use on certain explosives safety applications. In addition, recent research will be presented on the performance of concrete elements under blast loading.
