Description:
This updated edition provides general guidelines for the structural design of blast-resistant petrochemical facilities. Information is provided for U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, design objectives, siting considerations, and load determination; and references cite sources of detailed information. 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.
