Author: Swofford, Jason L
Abstract: Early on the morning of April 19 ,1995 , terrorists detonated a large amount of high explosives on NW 5th Street , just north of the Alfred P . Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City , Oklahoma . A rental truck contained approximately 5000 pounds of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil . Several buildings surrounding ground zero suffered structural damage , and many buildings suffered severe window breakage . The explosion killed 168 people and injured more than 600 others in proximity and away from ground zero . Flying glass shards resulting from fractured windows caused the majority of the injuries . The bombing of the Alfred P . Murrah Federal Building marked the largest terrorist act experienced in the United States . This document reports on the damage to structures caused by the blast , and more specifically the performance of various window glass types and window constructions .
