At the heart of the book lies the struggle, amid the rolling hills and small farms of Damascus, Arkansas, to prevent the explosion of a ballistic missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead ever built by the United by: Initial guidance in the field of protective structures design was provided in with the publication of the Tri-Service Design Manual Structures to Resist the Effects of Accidental Explosions (TM ), NAFVAC P, AFM ).

The manual presents procedures for determining the blast effects resulting from an explosion and techniques for the design of reinforced concrete structures.

The concept of “explosion” is discussed and alternative definitions presented. The most typical accidental explosions in the process industries are gas/vapor and dust explosions. However, although the two types of explosive clouds have quite similar ignition and combustion properties, there are other important differences.

Explosion Hazards and Evaluation presents the principles and applications of explosion hazards evaluation. The text is organized into nine chapters. Chapters 1 and 2 discuss the energy release processes which generate accidental explosions, and the resulting development of pressure and shock waves in a surrounding atmosphere.

Title: Accidental explosions This book presents a survey of accidental explosions, their nature and their causes.

It covers the physical and chemical conditions governing accidental explosions, whether in the gas phase, or in the liquid or solid state. The accidental dust explosions are highly undesirable in any plant, and therefore, one seeks less dramatic means of transferring knowledge and motivation.

One way is the use of case histories, that is, the fairly detailed accounts of dust explosions that actually occurred elsewhere. Accidental Presidents: Eight Men Who Changed America Hardcover – April 9, #N#Jared Cohen (Author) › Visit Amazon's Jared Cohen Page.

The catastrophe is widely considered the worst man-made accidental explosion in history when factoring in not just the size of the blast but also the number of casualties, the radius of the damage, and the loss of property. The death toll was so immense that more Nova Scotians died in the explosion than otherwise in World War I.

Largest artificial non-nuclear explosions. There have been many extremely large explosions, accidental and intentional, caused by modern high explosives, boiling liquid expanding vapour explosions (BLEVEs), older explosives such as gunpowder, volatile petroleum-based fuels such as petrol, and other chemical reactions.
