Analysis of glass panels subjected to explosive blast at close proximity
"The glass structures of exterior window panels may become a debris hazard to building occupants when high explosives, for example, a terrorist vehicle bomb or body bomb, are detonated outside of a building. It is much more hazardous in body bomb case than in other types of terrorist attacks because the attack could happen in close proximity of the buildings. The dynamic response of glass structures subjected to small blast load at a short distance, however, has not fully understood. To address this issue, a 3-D, nonlinear, dynamic finite element model has been developed in this work to analyze the stress in a monolithic glass panel subjected to small blast load at a short distance. In this study, the small blast load at a short distance is modeled as a spherical blast wave"--Abstract, page iii.
