U.S. DoD, DoS, and ISC/GSA blast design guidelines are currently in place to help resist intentional vehicle bomb threats to U.S. government facilities. Accidental blast scenarios within petrochemical facilities require blast mitigation for occupied buildings as stipulated by OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119. Typical government and petrochemical building exterior cladding systems have limited blast capacity and represent a significant debris hazard to occupants.
