Abstract
The finite strip method can be used to approximate the response of plates and plate assemblages under blast type loads at a cost and effort significantly less than that required for finite element or finite difference analyses. An added advantage is that such problems can be run on smaller computers. The report describes the development of such a finite strip approach and the associated computer program. Many test examples have been run and the results are presented herein.
