3 Introduction University Of Mississippi is evaluating the blast resistance of moment-frame structures. Damage Mapping has been developed and applied to RC columns subjected to air blast loading. Work is currently being done on the performance of steel columns subjected to air blast loading.

4 Multi-Hazard Design and Blast Vulnerability Analysis
Characterize multi-hazard loading parameters Structural design procedure (IBC LL,DL,WL & EQ) Seismic design Defines member capacities Member capacity curves Damage levels P-I curves Blast damage mapping

5 Hazard Exposure Source:

6 Hazard Exposure Lafayette County/Oxford, MS Area
Approximately 270 miles from the Gulf of Mexico Coast. Approximately 150 mile from the southern termination of the New Madrid fault. Also, several high value buildings within the area. Federal Court House Federal Office Buildings Etc.

7 Hazard Exposure Building Size 3 Story Two 20 foot transverse bays
Three 40 foot longitudinal bays.

8 Preliminary Design Complete design was in accordance with the International Building Code 2006. References ASCE/SEI 7-05 ANSI/AISC

9 Dead, Live, and Earthquake
Preliminary Design Live Loads Determine from the “Minimum Uniformly Distributed Live Loads and Minimum Concentrated Live Loads” from IBC 2006 Used “Office Use” and “Ordinary Flat Roof” Load Combinations From ASCE 7-05, Load and Resistance Factor Design Dead Dead and Live Dead, Live, and Earthquake 1.4D 1.2D+1.6L 1.2D+1.0E+f1L f1 = 0.5

10 Preliminary Design Beam Design Using AISC W18x50 7.5” 18”

11 Preliminary Design Column
We looked at an interior column due to it being the worst case scenario. Determined to be a W8x31 Axial Load Capacity Ratio is 0.75 8” 8”

12 Preliminary Design Completed SAP2000 Model

13 Preliminary Design Completed SAP2000 Model

14 Preliminary Design Lateral Loads
Seismic Loading controls even though in a moderately low seismic area. Developed the seismic load using IBC 2006 and ASCE 7-05. Applied these loads to a computer model using SAP v.12 to determine moments. Section size was still efficient. Capacity Ratio increased from 0.75 to 0.77 for an interior lower level column

15 Preliminary Design SAP 2000 view of lateral load displacements

16 Blast Blast Pressures are estimated New Load Case developed
Leads to acquiring standoff distances and charge weights. New Load Case developed Using a Military Technical Manuel, TM5-1300, “Structures to Resist the Effects of Accidental Explosion.”

17 Blast The threshold of acceptable blast resistance can be determined by considering alternate pressure scenarios and column and beam damage levels. Severe Moderate Slight No damage
