Abstract: According to National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) report, accidents due to Fire has been ranked fifth it’s up by three positions from the last year’s ranking and accidents due to fire killed more human lives and lead to property loss. Due to explosive accidents, it revealed that loads, for example, the effect of essential sections, and effect of optional parts, and pressure by reflective and blast waves are generated and it collapses the whole structure. To overcome the damages due to fire accidents, strengthening of members, protection to the structure, design the structural member as a more adequate to resist the blast load and design the structure as a blast resistant may be good. In this paper, various structural members due to blast load and the numerical methods to persist the blast load behaviour are reviewed. The behaviours of various type of concrete under blast load were discussed. Based on the review, it may be concluded that to avoid explosive collapse the structural member has to be designed to withstand the blast waves and utilization of adaptable type materials which was light in weight result by decreasing transfer of energy and less strength, less ductile fibres mixed into the concrete will give blast performance to the concrete.
