- Publish Date: 1996-12-13
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Eve E. Hinman;David J. Hammond
This book documents the Oklahoma City bombing incident from a structural standpoint. It provides detailed discussion of the construction of the building and the hazard mitigation stops taken during the rescue/recovery process. Both authors were present during this process: Dr. Hinman conducted a bomb damage assessment survey to verify blast resistant design concepts that are currently employed, and Mr. Hammond served as Chief Structural Engineer after the incident. This book not only discusses the structural aspects of this particular case, but will also provide insight for all structural and architectural engineers who want to improve the blast resistance of new and existing buildings.
