dc.description.abstractTerrorist attacks were once predominately focused on US military posts or US embassies overseas, and the perception has been the danger was "over there". However there have been recent foreign and domestic terrorist attacks have occurring in the US. The most common form of the attack is a moving or stationary vehicle to carrying home-made explosives and detonating it at Federal, commercial, industrial, or educational facilities which are perceived symbols of the US. This report will review the general properties of a bomb blast, defense plan development, the concept of defense in depth for an urban planning layout, and preventing progressive collapse of a structure. A review of lessons learned from the case study of the 1993 World Trade Center, Oklahoma City, Beirut, and Khobar Towers. The last area will be final conclusions and recommendations when considering defensive applications.en_US
