This paper presents analytical tools to assess the performance of steel-plate composite (SC) walls subjected to blast and impact loads. These methods include P-I diagrams, design charts, single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) models, and nonlinear finite element (FE) analysis. Each analytical method has been benchmarked to an experimental database which includes a wide range of design and load parameters. The paper also includes examples and recommendations to use these tools to assist in the design of protective structures.
