This book presents the state-of-the-art in the general subject of structures for enhanced safety and physical security. The technical papers written are by engineers and researchers who are involved with various subjects in this field. The book contains the following four parts: Part 1 - Threat Environments and Facility Planning, is devoted to problem definition, and to describing approaches for planning safe and secure structures. Part 2 - Structural Testing and Response, contains a collection of papers which address the observed behavior of various types of structures, structural elements, or test models under the effects of specific threats. Part 3 - Analysis and Design methods, discusses approaches that have been employed for the analysis and/or the design of structures subjected to the severe loads described in the first two parts. Part 4 - Case Histories and Industrial Safety provides detailed information on specific real cases for illustrating the severe problems under consideration, and additional discussions on industrial safety.
