Live Webinar – Anti-Terrorism Standards For Design of Buildings
Intended Audience: All Engineers
Credits: 2 PDH Units
When: 12/4. 10-12 pm EST
Get the latest insights into the anti-terrorism assumptions for building design exploring the location, size, and nature of unpredictable terrorist threats.
Developed by expert J. Paul Guyer, P.E., our online engineering webinar discusses current anti-terrorism assumptions for building design and the specific range of assumed threats to consider in order to provide a reasonable baseline for the design of all inhabited buildings.
Designing to resist baseline threats not only provides general protection today. It also establishes a foundation upon which to build additional measures where they’re justified by higher threats or where the threat environment is expected to increase in the future.
While those baseline threats are less than some of the terrorist attacks that have been directed against personnel in the past, they represent more severe threats than a majority of historical attacks. As such, it may be cost prohibitive to provide protection against the worst-case scenario in every building.
The webinar provides engineers and other professionals insight into the nature of terrorist threats. The anti-terrorism assumptions for building design that are addressed in these standards cover attacks on personnel. Threats to other assets and critical infrastructure are beyond the scope of these standards.

At the successful conclusion of this webinar, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
- Location, size, and nature of terrorist threats, which by nature are unpredictable
- Baseline explosive weights
- How a vehicle bomb is assumed to be a stationary vehicle bomb (i.e. vehicles presumed to be parked covertly without being noticed as doing anything unusual)
- How waterborne vessels will be assumed to contain quantities of certain explosives depending on whether or not a controlled perimeter has been established
- How indirect fire weapons are assumed to be military mortars with fragmentation rounds containing explosives
- How direct fire weapons include small arms weapons and shoulder-fired rockets requiring direct lines of sight.
