Shock tube tests on a 124 scale model air raid shelter are described giving the pressure-time history of several areas in the seating chamber as the shelter model is subjected to a long duration shock wave. Some minor changes in the construction of the shelter entrance-way are suggested which effect significant reduction in pressures in the seating chamber.
