Risk Based Approach to Blast Resistant Upgrades

Coupling the results of a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) with the calculated blast resistance of a building, BakerRisk is able to design structural upgrades to meet a client specified risk criteria instead of a specific blast load.

Pressure-impulse curves representing the blast capacity of structural upgrade overlaid with blast loads resulting from a wide range of postulated scenarios.

Accounting for the frequency associated with each blast load, the risk associated with each level of building damage and the cumulative explosion risk can be calculated.
