Effects of TNT Explosives having Different weights on G+5 Shopping Mall Building

Authors(2) :-Prof. G. P. Deshmukh, Prasad R. Gayaki

Explosives are very severe problem all over the world due to terrorist’s activities. Their aim is to destroy the place where there is large amount of rush. As the shopping malls are having large amount of rush daily so such type of the building should be blast resistant. We are going to study the behavior of shopping mall against blast load. A comparative study is carried out using ETABS software with different weight of TNT explosive using time history calculations and then finally it is concluded that what is the exact difference in the effect of two different weights of TNT explosives. Different parameters are compared using graphical and tabular form.
