Abstract This report is one of a series addressing general issues relevant to blast and fire engineering for offshore structures. Details are given of worldwide experimental facilities suitable for the study of explosion hazards. (Fire research facilities are reviewed in report OTI 92 598). Replies to an experimental facilities questionnaire were received from 47 organisations and are reproduced in this report. A review of the data shows that there are few facilities capable of carrying out large scale explosion experiments and there are no explosion rigs of a scale suitable for modelling a complete offshore module.
