Abstract:

The objective of this project was to determine, through an experimental investigation, the structural response of the F-84F type aircraft when exposed during flight to the effects of a nuclear explosion. Specifically, the program was arranged to secure fundamental data on 1 relationships between weapon yield, aircraftplacement, orientation, and aircraft structural responses 2 resultant stresses caused by thermal radiation impinging upon the aircraft 3 aerodynamic cooling effect 4 magnitude and effect of skin temperature rise with varying angle of incidence and 5 effect of asymmetrical loading on aircraft structure by a side blast.
