A structural analysis performed by Scandpower combining explosion simulations and structural analysis utilising the the computer tools USFOS and FLACS is described. As of today, the most common procedure for elastic and plastic explosion response analyses is to define the explosion load as a uniform pressure vs. time function for all surfaces and elements in the model. Capabilities of the computer tools FLACS and USFOS allow for a more refined approach, recognizing that for large geometries
