Handbook for Blast Resistant Design of Buildings
Written by the Chair of the ASCE committee, H
andbook for Blast Resistant Design of Buildings is a design-oriented companion to the new ASCE Blast Protection of Buildings standard. With contributions from twenty-seven experts, this text provides methods that satisfies the new standard and the existing ASCE, ACI, AISC codes. Exploring structural systems, materials performance, protection of spaces, life-safety systems, blast effects, blast resistant design, performance verification, and more, this handbook guides engineers and architects through the thought process necessary to detail structural systems for blast resistance.
