This document can also be found on the official website of the Department of Defense Information Analysis Centers (IAC) at: https://dodiac.dtic.mil.
This publication describes some principles, such as mass and distance, for designing structures resistant to blasts. It provides a broad, overall
perspective on the problem of designing a hardened structure. A hardened facility design example is presented to demonstrate the procedure.
