Abstract : The handbook is the third in a series on the nature and effects of the environmental phenomena. As the title implies, the handbook addresses a set of induced environmental factors which comprise: (a) Atmospheric Pollutants; (b) Sand and Dust; (c) Vibration; (d) Shock; (e) Acceleration; (f) Acoustics; (g) Electromagnetic Radiation; (h) Nuclear Radiation. These particular factors were chosen as best representing the needs of the design engineer. It is recognized that this set is arbitrary and that natural forces contribute, sometimes in a major way, to these environmental parameters. The information is organized as follows: (a) Description of the factor, its measurement, and its distribution; (b) Description of the effects of the factor on materiel and the procedures for design so as to avoid or reduce adverse effects; (c) Enumeration of the testing and simulation procedures that assure adequate design.
