Abstract : The feasibility of remedial movement, i.e., transfer of people from inadequate fallout shelters to areas providing greater protection, was investigated. Within the limitations imposed by the conditions of the study, certain conclusions were drawn: (1) As might be expected, the maximum opportunities for payoff are related to refuges having lower protection factors. (2) Maximum payoff conditions are related to fallout arriving at early times. (3) Maximum payoff conditions generally involve reference radiation intensities of 350 r/hr or greater, with the upper limit of about 2000 r/hr. (4) For one- hour arrivals the maximum allowable travel time for maximum payoff is about 1.3 hours.
