This excellent book highlights all aspects of the analysis and design of buildings subject to impact, explosion and fire. It is a definitive reference book and contains 10 chapters from a wide international prospective. Three-dimensional finite element and discrete element techniques are included. They are applied to buildings such as the World Trade Center (WTC Twin Towers) and the Federal Building in Oklahoma on the basis of the designers drawings, data and other information.

This excellent book highlights all aspects of the analysis and design of buildings subject to impact, explosion and fire. It is a definitive reference book and contains 10 chapters from a wide international prospective. Three-dimensional finite element and discrete element techniques are included. They are applied to buildings such as the World Trade Center (WTC Twin Towers) and the Federal Building in Oklahoma on the basis of the designers drawings, data and other information. Many small case studies are also included. The book has a comprehensive bibliography and a large appendix providing background analysis and computer subroutines of recently developed programs.
Manynationshavebecomevictimsofterrorism. Bombshaveexplodedinand around buildings and other structures. Such events have generated cons- erable concern over the ability of countries and governments to protect - stallations and their occupants against a potential threat of terrorism. Many countries have established defence agencies and research councils who are currently examining the structural integrity of existing buildings and other vital installations. In some countries codi?ed methods have been developed together with the design methodologies and construction techniques to try to protect old installations against vehicle bomb e?ects in particular. The purpose of this book is to give an exhaustive study of buildings structures resistingexplosion with and withoutexternal/internalimpactand ?recaused by such e?ects. A number of case studies with damage scenarios are included. The book is divided into various chapters. Chapter 1 gives a review of bomb-a?ected buildings. Case studies incl- ingAlfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma and World Trade Center (WTC) Twin Towers in New York have been given a wide coverage. Notable explosionsintheworldwithrelevantdataaretabulated. Afterthesethed- age scenario of the Pentagon building is fully described. This chapter now resorts to the availability of data on major explosive elements, their ingre- ents and material properties.
