Title The effects of simplification of the explosion pressure-time history

Abstract This report is one of a series of reports concerning blast resistance of offshore structures. Pressure-time histories recorded during gas/vapour cloud explosion blast tests were studied in order to gain an insight into the kinds of loads experienced. Examples of some typical explosion pressure-time histories are described along with blast loads and their characteristics and effects on response by idealisation of loads. Areas of uncertainty include the derivation and idealisation of net loads on structures and the response of more complex and larger scale structures.
