HIGH COMMISSION FOR INDUSTRIAL SECURITY, MINISTRY OF INTERIOR

Project Description

The High Commission for Industrial Security, Ministry of Interior Project is around 3955-m² area. It is formed with two basements, a ground floor level as well as two upper floors and a roof. The project is formed with three rectangular buildings connected to form a shape resembling the letter “H”.

The blast-resistant facade spans from the ground floor to the roof slab and then projects 4.0 m in height from that structural level of the roof slab, the overall height of the facade is 11.85 m.

The facade was designed as a face-sealed, high-strength steel glazed curtain wall; it includes several corners as part of the architectural design intent.

Provided Services

  • Blast Wave Modeling
  • Blast Impulse Calculations
  • Dynamic Structural Analysis
  • Glazing Fracture Analysis and Design
  • Blast Facade System Design

Scope of Work

IBECE’s mission on this project was to provide Blast Resistance Engineering and Design for the Facade Construction. The Design target was to achieve a GSA Hazard Level C (minimal hazard).

ANSYS – Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) module have been used to specifically simulate the propagation of the Blast Wave through the geometry of the main building.
