||The prediction of the pressure loading on structures resulting from an explosion
||HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. 45p. Illus. 10 ref. Price: GBP 10.00.
||This report is one of a series concerning blast loading on offshore structures. An overview of pressure loading on structures is presented followed by a review of theoretical and experimental research relevant to the prediction of loads on structures resulting from explosions in offshore modules. The current state of knowledge is summarised along with areas of uncertainty. There was found to be a lack of both experimental information and of proven instrumentation techniques capable of measuring loads directly under explosion conditions. Glossary.
