Integrated Tools for Public Protection
Explosion Standoff Calculator
Another feature of the PEAC-WMD tool is the Explosion Standoff Calculator. If the selected chemical is classified as an explosive material and
PEAC has sufficient information in its database to calculate an evacuation distance based on a user specified over-pressurization value, the
Explosion Standoff distance can be calculated. This computation assesses both the blast damage caused by the shock wave and the hazardous
fragmentation threat caused by shrapnel or projectiles being thrown from the blast. The fragmentation calculations conform to the US NAVY EOD
(Explosive Ordinance Disposal) algorithms and guidelines.
