CSA-S850 – Design and Assessment of Buildings Subjected to Blast Loads

The Content

CSA S850 is a new Canadian standard for the design and assessment of buildings subjected to blast loads. It is the most detailed and comprehensive standard of its kind in the world. The standard allows designers to determine for a given blast scenario, or design basis threat, the level of protection that can be provided by an existing building structure or that can be achieved in a new structure. It provides detailed procedures for determining blast load on buildings for a given charge size and standoff, the strength of materials under high strain rates, the selection of the appropriate methods of analysis and design for reinforced concrete, steel, masonry and wood components and structures and for field testing of structural and non-structural components under blast loads. It also contains provisions for preventing progressive collapse and brittle failure. The procedures for Threat and Risk Assessment (TRA) will be discussed.

This includes the review and documentation of potential threats and all existing or planned security measures which may affect the selection of the appropriate Design Basis Threat (DBT). In CSA S850, DBT is a key component of the design and assessment of buildings subjected to blast loads and designers will learn about the elements which are considered in its determination.
