The second edition has been fully revised and augmented to reflect significant developments in the field of blast engineering since the early 1990s. Combining coverage of the most up-to-date design standards, codes and materials with a detailed appreciation of the needs and demands of the designer, this book provides the engineer with a single and comprehensive source of reference for all the main elements of blast engineering design in modern practice. Industry-accepted methods for the design of glazing to resist blast loading are published for the first time, as well as a new chapter on hostile vehicle mitigation techniques. Guidance on structural steelwork and reinforced concrete design is extended and enhanced, supplemented with material on design in new materials such as steel-concrete-steel composites, this latter addition being published for the first time. Key features of this second edition: expanded guidance to cover the design against blast from both high explosive detonations and deflagrations due to industrial, vapour cloud and dust explosions; structural design guidance and worked examples updated and aligned in full accordance with the Eurocodes; previously unavailable design practice for steel-concrete-steel composite construction; important new coverage of the design of glazing to resist blast loading; extensive guidance on the design of hostile vehicle mitigation methods; discussion of the design of building services to counter the effects of blast loading; and, description of modern good practice on protected spaces, corporate resilience and emergency planning.
