Abstract: There has been an immense significance of sparing structures like pipe structures which exchange oil and gas, blasts on these pipe lines may intrude on the transmission. In the current decades a lot of research is done to think about the auxiliary reaction under impact loads. Oil and gas companies must do all they can to ensure a steady supply of product to distributors and consumers. An infrastructure of pipes that carry oil and gas across the country and around the world is, therefore, essential. Parts such as piping materials, pipe shoes, and wear pads, must be durable and resilient, so maintenance and repairs do not interrupt the supply of product. Pipes are made of steel in these days as they have corrosive resistance and a strong and reliable material. Cast iron pipe is a pipe which has had historic use as a pressure pipe for transmission of water, gas and sewage, and as a water drainage pipe during the 19th and 20th centuries. The paper depicts the comparison of vonmisses stress and pressure of pipes made up of steel and cast iron subjected to different blast loads and the simulation is carried out using LS-Dyna software
Keywords: Blast, LS-DYNA, Steel Pipe, Cast-Iron Pipe, Von Misses Stress, Pressure.
