The main aim of this study is to review the work already done till now on the effect of blast loading on structures. Nowadays, there are various terrorist activities in the world and therefore for the security the structure should be design as a blast proof. But this is uneconomical in middle society point of view. But in case of public building like Industrial building, shopping mall etc. are possible to deign as blast proof structure. These types of attacks are exceptional cases which is not man-made disasters. Blast loads are in generally in the type of dynamic loads that need to be carefully calculated just like earthquake and wind loads and design also made for that structure considering a blast loading. . If the structures is designed to resist the blast load impact the cost of the structure tends to be very high. Specially, we have to take extra care of that structure which are located in highly sensitive area where bombarding, explosion or wars are happened day by day also the region of high intensity earthquake zone based on codal criteria. The objective of this study is to shed light on blast resistant building design theories, the enhancement of building security against the effects of explosives in structural design process and the design techniques that should be carried out. The paper includes information about explosives, blast loading parameters and enhancements for blast resistant building design with an structural approach.
