An efficient empirical approach was developed to accurately represent the blast shock wave loading resulting from the launch of a missile from a military aircraft to be used in numerical analyses. Based on experimental test series of missile launches in laboratory environment and from a helicopter, equations were derived to predict the time- and position-dependent overpressure.
Blast Safety of the Building Envelope WBDG - Whole Direct air-blast effects refer to damage caused by the high-intensity pressures of the air-blast close in to the explosive source. These may induce the localized failure of exterior envelope components. The severity of response is a function of the size of the weapon, its proximity to the exterior envelope and the construction materials used.

Improving Safety Provisions of Structural Design of shock and airblast forces have been obtained which can be easily applied in structural response analysis. Study of blast-induced ground shock due to underground explosion has also been quite extensive in the last two decades. Both continuum and discontinuum models have been used to simulate blast-induced stress wave in rock masses .
Despite growing demands for structures in water transportation tunnels, underground installations, subsurface dams, and subterranean channels, there is limited field knowledge about the dynamic behavior of these structures in the face of near-fault earthquakes or impulse excitations. This study conducted a large-scale test on underground tunnel excited by two close-in subsurface explosions.
Navy Ship Underwater Shock Prediction and Testing Oct 24, 2007 · to shock hardening than FSST, though validation is critical before FSST replacement can be considered. 1.1.1 Component testing and full ship shock trials The FSST tests are done at two thirds of the shock level that ships are required to survive, a level that belongs to
PCI Design Handbook:Appendix A:Blast-resistant Analysis of Hardened Structures to Conventional Weapons Effects4 (for official use only) tion reaction loads from the building response to the blast load. Therefore, dynamic foundation analysis is not required for most sion.9 This energy expands as a shock or pressure wave, causing a localized, short-duration rise in air pressure at the
RCBlast analysis results have been verified extensively against experimental data generated using the University of Ottawa's Shock Tube Test Facility, illustrated above. The software can perform dynamic analysis for a wide range of structures, for example (from left to right):undamaged and damaged non-seismic as-built column; undamaged and

Ship Shock Trial Simulation of USS Winston S. Churchill simulated response predictions and the actual measured response are made for all three shots. The effects of charge (Underwater Shock Analysis) coupled computer code [7,8]. The addition of five blast hardened bulkheads . Figure 1. USS WINSTON S.
Shock response spectrum analysis is the maximum response of a series of single degree of freedom systems [having the] same damping to a given transient signal. Transient Shock Examples. The following illustrations show examples of transient shock. Figure 1 is the acceleration-time his-
Transcriptional response to heat shock in liver of snow Therefore, we have used deep RNA sequencing to decipher the transcriptome of snow trout and characterize the genes and molecular pathways involved in heat shock response. In this study 72,601,298 and 65,428,283 raw reads for heat-shocked and control, respectively, were obtained by Illumina paired-end sequencing technology.
haracterizing Explosive Effects on Underground Empirical equations for predicting these blast-induced effects and designing underground structures under explosive loads are available in the literature. These empirical equations, however, do have a specific range of applicability. Numerical analysis techniques (e.g., finite element) also require specific assumptions and idealizations.
