Abstract This report is one of a series concerning blast resistance of offshore structures. Finite element (FE) analysis packages appropriate for the assessment of structures subject to dynamic blast loading are described. An introduction to the subject of FE analysis is followed by a review of the analysis types required to determine blast resistance and a summary of the capabilities required of FE programmes to enable an accurate assessment of blast. A review is presented of the most suitable programmes selected from the results of a questionnaire survey among various companies.
