This report provides general guidelines in the structural design of blast resistant petrochemical facilities. Informational coverage is provided for OSHA requirements, design objectives, siting considerations, and load determination with references mentioned for more detailed information. More detailed coverage is provided for types of construction, dynamic material strengths, allowable response criteria, analysis methods, and design procedures. Typical details and ancillary considerations, such as doors and windows, are also included. A "how to" discussion on the upgrade of existing buildings is provided for older facilities which may not meet current needs. Three example calculations are included to illustrate design procedures.

Unique single reference supports functional and cost-efficientdesigns of blast resistant buildings Now there's a single reference to which architects, designers,and engineers can turn for guidance on all the key elements of thedesign of blast resistant buildings that satisfy the new ASCEStandard for Blast Protection of Buildings as well as other ASCE,ACI, and AISC codes. The Handbook for Blast Resistant Design ofBuildings features contributions from some of the mostknowledgeable and experienced consultants and researchers in blastresistant design. This handbook is organized into four parts: Part 1, Design Considerations, sets forth basic principles,examining general considerations in the design process; riskanalysis and reduction; criteria for acceptable performance;materials performance under the extraordinary blast environment;and performance verification for technologies and solutionmethodologies. Part 2, Blast Phenomena and Loading, describes the explosionenvironment, loading functions needed for blast response analysis,and fragmentation and associated methods for effects analysis. Part 3, System Analysis and Design, explains the analysis anddesign considerations for structural, building envelope, componentspace, site perimeter, and building system designs. Part 4, Blast Resistant Detailing, addresses the use ofconcrete, steel, and masonry in new designs as well as retrofittingexisting structures. As the demand for blast resistant buildings continues to grow,readers can turn to the Handbook for Blast Resistant Design ofBuildings, a unique single source of information, to supportcompetent, functional, and cost-efficient designs.
