Speaker: Ramon Gilsanz, Gilsanz Murray Steficek LLP Moderator: Charles Carter, AISC
The session provided an introduction to the new AISC Design Guide, Blast Resistant
Steel Design. This guide discusses blast resistance and progressive collapse mitigation,
and presents the basic theory on these topics through the use of design examples.
The concepts explained in this guide, along with a background in structural dynamics,
will assist the practicing structural engineer when interacting with blast consultants
to produce effective designs.
