Blast Resistant Glazing Design 2007:

Blast Resistant Glazing Design 2007 finds its basis in the ASTM F 2248 design standard.  The software enables the user to size rectangular laminated glass and insulating glass constructed with at least one laminated glass lite to resist user-specified explosive threats. This software operates in a Windows™ environment.  As an upgraded and revised version of Blast Resistant Glazing Design 2003, BRGD 2007 continues to provide user-friendly input and output and prints detailed reports.
