Impact of disasters provides huge property loss, life loss and climatic changes. Consideration of disasters in design is more important to avoid losses. Disasters are mainly of two types i.e. natural and artificial disasters. The main cause for artificial disasters is terrorists attack, domestical gas blast and any industrial leakages turned to blast. Generally, blast loads are not considered in the design of structures because these are man-made disasters. A structure should be designed in such manner that it has to endure the blast loads also. Blast loads can be designed as dynamic loads. Effect of blast load depends on the point of occurrence of blast and also length b/w the structure or structural element from the blast and wave propagation due to blast. The current research mainly focuses on blast studies and also to study the behaviour of G+10 structure with and without in-fills when it is exposed to blast loads. Damage assessment of structural member can be assessed by analyzing the structure in ETABS software. The response of the structure is studied in terms of displacements, storey drifts and stress contours. Design a structure by adopting the best technique i.e. shear wall to resist blast load also to make the structure sustainable.

Keyphrases: Blast load, displacements, In-filled frame, shearwall, storey drifts
