In today's geopolitical environment, the need to protect both military facilities and civilian population from enemy attack has not diminished. Furthermore, we noted an increasing need to protect civilian populations against terrorism and social and subversive unrest. Protecting society against this form of featureless evolving type of warfare will remain a challenge, at least through the first half of 21st century and certainly longer. Any outstanding recognition will require a well planned multi-layered contribute to that strikes a fine coordination between ensuring a nations security and support the freedoms that modern society enjoys. In this context, this project is done to study the impact of blast loading for nuclear explosion on buildings. On high these recommendations define the structural strength pre-eminent to withstand the force produced by a surface burst of a nuclear weapon. A brief forum of the major parameters which exercise the force acting on a structure is followed by a specification of the peak magnitude and time variation of these forces. Specific details which define the net forces acting on an element of the basic structural types are given. As this design requires a sound background on blast loading mitigations and as it not economical only. Following the discussion of the effects of the size and function of a structure is specification of basic properties of reinforced concrete and steel. The protective structural analysis is based upon the Tri Service Manual TM 5-1300, ASCE Manual 42, FEMA guidelines and Indian Standards
