Editor: William Bounds


The 15 papers in this Symposium Publication describe a range of applications for this seemingly narrow area of structural engineering: design to resist or discourage terrorism against civilian and governmental buildings, design to eliminate or minimize destruction from industrial accidents, and design to protect military facilities. To assist the reader in focusing on a particular level of interest, the papers have been grouped into three sections. Section One, Design Aspects, relates directly to the design process. Section Two, Current Procedures and Recent Developments, provides an overall viewpoint. Section Three, Theoretical Developments, focuses on research issues.
