The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Protective Design Center (PDC) was tasked with the development of portions of the new Department of Defense (DoD) Security Engineering Manual. This manual will support the newly developed DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standard for Buildings and provide an update to information contained in older security manuals. Since the development of the earlier manuals, many structural components used in conventionally constructed facilities have been tested against airblast loading, and much has been learned about their response to blast. In order to utilize this newer information, it is important for it to be summarized in a usable format for engineers involved in the design or analysis of blast loaded structures.
