POST BLAST DAMAGE EVALUATION OF RC BUILDING
type of extreme load. The importance shall not only considered the design of the buildings to resist the blast loading but also damaged building after the explosion shall be evaluated for usability and safety as soon as possible. The purpose of this study is to develop a methodology for post-blast damage evaluations and safety assessment of reinforced concrete building. To meet this goal and due similar characteristics of the Blast and Seismic loadings, comparison study has been conducted. The post-earthquake damage evaluation methodologies have been adapted and modified for postexplosion damage.
