I know there are means and methods of designing Blast resistant "occupiedbuildings". However, for process structures which are very rarely occupied but could be housing blast capable equipments, do you ever consider blast loads while designing those structures? These are typically open structures - just a framework of beams and columns and grating. No roof or side walls. Is there anywhere in any Code that tells you to add or ignore blast loads for the process structures? Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.
