Structural design of stainless steel blast walls. B.A. Burgan, R. Brewerton and R. Martland. Paper. Proc. Conf., Offshore structures---hazard and integrity management, Session 7, Paper No. 3, 21 pages (See abstract 1393 for complete reference).
The background is given to a new guide specifically aimed at the design of stainless steel blast walls. It provides guidance in the form of hand calculation methods and advice on the application of finite element analysis. Certain aspects are covered of stainless steel blast wall design such as grades---material properties and corrosion---assessment of cross-sections, overall strength, connections and fabrication aspects. 6 refs.
