Abstract : The Club originated in the collaboration between the Federal Republic of Germany, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland to evaluate the potential of a new method of limiting the external hazard from an explosion in underground explosive storage facilities. The aim of the Club is to obtain an effective information exchange between technical representatives of the member nations meeting together from time to time to exchange information on explosives trails and accident data, and their interpretation and application. The current areas of particular interest between the members are: (1) Explosives Quantity distance data and prescriptions as applied to manufacture and storage; (2) Structural response to both internal and external explosions; and (3) Risk Analysis.
