An overview of blast analysis tools, demonstrating where and when they are valid.

Protective building design requires a detailed understanding of blast loads and explosion damage mechanics. Many blast analysis tools are based on a combination of empirical data, analytical approximations and scaling rules which are not always accurate for explosive events in complex urban environments.
