Shelter shapes and sizes that appear to offer the best compromise for standardizing new shelter design are described. The study had the following general conditions and criteria 1 below ground, single-unit structures with a minimum of three feet of earth cover such as might be constructed under parks or playgrounds this will result in radiation protection factors of 1000 or more 2 consideration of both fallout and blast shelters fallout shelters to be designed on a nominal live-load basis and blast shelters to be designed at 35 and 60 psi overpressure 3 an extended shelter occupancy time and a closure capability of up to 24 hours 4 protection against the induction of chemical, biological and radiological contaminants and 5 single-unit capacities of 100, 500 and 1000 persons each with a 5-minute loading capability.
