Blast and Impact Loading and Response of Structures
Full Session with Abstracts
This presentation will examine different construction types of blast resistant modules that can be incorporated at an industrial facility. While blast capacity is of primary interest, leading to typical steel framing and crimped plate constructions, other factors such as day-to-day use and behavior in extreme temperature/weather conditions are also important design factors that may warrant using alternative construction materials. Pros and cons of the different module types will be given for select site conditions.
