Blast Effects on Buildings is an indispensible guide to help engineers reduce the risks posed to building occupants and businesses by terrorist and other explosions.
The second edition of this highly regarded text, lead edited by Arup Associate David Cormie, has been fully revised and augmented to reflect significant developments in the field of blast engineering since the early 1990s.
It combines coverage of the most up-to-date design standards, codes and materials with a detailed appreciation of the needs and demands of the designer. The 1995 first edition published by Cranfield University’s Peter Smith and Geoff Mays is regarded as the key reference in this field.
David Cormie, an Associate in Arup’s Security and Risk Consulting practice and a senior member of the counter-terrorism team, has led the development of the second edition, which also features contributions from Arup specialists in security consulting and advanced technology and research, demonstrating Arup’s world-class expertise in this area.
