Abstract

Military facilities are tested to determine their survivability and hardness against attacks. Usually these tests consist of exposing a scaled model of a structure to a blast from a conventional bomb or a simulated nuclear environment at a remote site. Test siting and site definition are conducted by geological literature reviews, on-site inspections, geophysical surveys, and exploratory trenching and drilling. The test data analysis phase requires geotechnical input for the analytic models used in assessing the dynamic loads and motions endured by the structure.--Modified journal abstract.
