Blast-Resistant Design of Steel Buildings
This lecture will provide architects and engineers with an introduction to blast-resistant design of steel buildings. The physics of explosions and blast loads will be introduced along with their interaction with buildings and structures. Blast-resistant design and detailing of steel components, connections, and structures will be discussed using design examples based on real projects. Typical analysis methods, software tools, design criteria, and performance requirements for government and industrial buildings will also be covered.
This course is based on a past AISC Live Webinar.
