This review is conducted with emphasis on the analysis performed for laminated composite plates that are subjected to blast loads. A general discussion and classification of the different laminated plate theories is also given. Various types of time-dependent external blast pulse models that are widely used in the literature are summarized. Main aim is to categorize previous laminated plate theories in a general sense and give an overview on the development, characteristics and applications of numerical methods on the response of laminated composite plates subjected to blast loads. This review article contains 142 references.
