dc.description.abstract This thesis presents the results of an investigation into the effects of several geometric parameters on the performance of perforated plates as a blast wave mitigation technique. Results of experimental and numerical simulations are reported. The main objective of this investigation was to determine the effects of the perforated plate hole size on the blast wave mitigation capability of the plate. The blast wave was created by detonating plastic explosives. The blast wave travelled unhindered down the length of a cylindrical tube where it came into contact with the perforated plate. en_ZA
