Propagation of shock waves through a set of plate barriers is studied numerically. It is found that the studied barrier sets are very effective in attenuating transmitted shock waves. All transmitted shock waves through the proposed barrier sets are reduced to mild compression waves upon exiting the sequence of inclined or vertically placed barrier plates.
