||This report is one of a series concerning blast loading on offshore structures. An overview of confined vented explosions is presented followed by a review of theoretical and experimental research including predictive modelling techniques. The report is only relevant to the problem of essentially empty volumes. The majority of "classical" methods for predicting peak vented explosion over-pressures are inappropriate to the general offshore explosion problem. Further work is needed to identify the effects of turbulence and the scale dependence of the combustion processes.
