This paper investigates numerically the response of a reinforced concrete frame to explosion-induced ground motions simulated at different distances from the explosion source. The results indicate that nearby structures might experience sudden shear failure and distant structures might undergo less severe damage due to high frequency response that causes larger strain in spite of smaller displacement.
