Blast Protection of Buildings – Engineering Standards
September 16 @ 13:00 - 14:30 EDT
A virtual discussion on engineering and design standards for Blast Protection of Buildings will be held September 16, 2021.
Join SEI Host Jennifer Goupil for a discussion about ASCE/SEI 59. The Blast Protection of Buildings standard provides minimum requirements for planning, design, construction, and assessment of new and existing buildings subject to the effects of accidental or malicious explosions. The Standard includes principles for establishing appropriate threat parameters, levels of protection, loadings, analysis methodologies, materials, detailing, and test procedures. It provides a comprehensive presentation of current practice in the analysis and design of structures for blast resistance. Commentaries on the requirements are also included. The Standard supplements existing building codes, standards, and laws, but is not intended to replace them.
