SECTION 6:
BLAST RESISTANT GLAZING
6.1
Introduction.  This section provides design guidelines
for frames, and two procedures to analyze the resistance of
glazing systems against bomb attack.  The first procedure is Bomb
Attack Analysis for Evaluation Application Procedure.  Use it to
evaluate existing windows.  The second procedure is Bomb Attack
Analysis for  Selection Application Procedure.  Use it to select
glazing systems for new construction and retrofitting existing
facilities.
6.2
Levels of Protection to Resist Bomb Attack.  There are
two levels of protection to resist a bomb attack:  low and high.
Table 12 provides a summary of the protective measures for each
level of protection.  Refer to Table D-30 for design parameters
associated with each of the threat severity levels for bomb
attack.
6.2.1
Low Level of Protection.  Provides resistance to
collateral damage resulting from a bomb attack on a neighboring
facility.
6.2.2
High Level of Protection.  Provides protection to
resist a bomb attack at the specified threat severity level.

selection and evaluation procedures for frames, anchorage, and
walls is beyond the scope of this document.  The analyst is
advised to seek the assistance of an engineer with experience in
blast overpressure analysis and design to complete an analysis of
