Abstract : The report describes the results of an investigation into the most advantageous approach for developing a computer program suitable for making blast analyses of 'box-type' structures. Airblast loadings and ground motions are reviewed. The mathematical formulation for calculating the dynamic response of lumped mass systems is presented. Both the mode-superposition and the step-by-step techniques are described. (Author)
