There are many events which are not solved as extreme design situations in present standards used for bridge design, maintenance and refurbishment - the safety of the users must be a priority of the bridge design. Explosions which endanger bridges can be caused by two cases – an explosion due to terrorist attack and the explosion due to an accident. It is necessary to study both of these cases. The blast loading of a structure can cause fatalities due to the blast wave and possible consequent progressive collapse. The paper summarizes numerical methods used for evaluation of fast dynamic phenomena and methods for determination of substitute loading of an explosion adjacent to a structure.
