A generalized mathematical model is presented of the rise of pressure with time within an enclosure as a function of enclosed volume, leakageopening area, static overpressure, and nuclear weapon yield. The results are shown graphically. Their applicability to the design of protected enclosures is illustrated by two examples of personnel shelters a small home shelter, and a considerably larger arrangement housing up to a hundred people.
