CME-C13Project title: "Sails-Rigging Blast Protective Structural Shield". Investigator: V. Shustov
   This research is to investigate the ability of a new building technique called Sails-Rigging Blast Protective Structural Shield  (BPS)  to improve the survivability of a facility subjected to an explosive attack, to determine when, where and  how BPS technique should be applied to achieve its goal. The objectives of the research are: 
    ·   Establish basic algorithms of a demand on and behavior of a building equipped with BPS exposed to an explosive attack. 
    ·   Develop a computational procedure for the building performance evaluation. 
    ·   Develop the articles and models for field blast testing.
