Abstract : A manual describing methods for predicting the detailed responses of electronic circuits and systems to a nuclear radiation pulse is presented in two volumes. Volume I outlines the procedures necessary for making both rapid estimates and detailed predictions of a circuit's response; examples are given for each method and results, including experimental comparisons, are shown for twenty circuits and systems. Logic, linear, and nonlinear circuits are included. Computer techinques are presented which contribute to a more rapid solution of the equations necessary for solving the charge-control radiation equivalent circuit behavoir. The philosophy of circuit and system hardening is discussed and specific suggestions are given for improving components selection and circuit design. Procedures for correlating results of measurements and predictions in different nuclear radiation environment are discussed and dosimetry techniques are presented for X-ray, gamma ray, electon, and neutron sources.
