Pagination or Media Count:
The objective of the research was to determine the feasibility of prospecting for, tapping, and recovering ground water, working from within fallout shelter boundaries, for use as a shelter ventilating air coolant. A literature search was made into the background of established techniques of soil penetration and well construction, with particular emphasis on those that might lend themselves to manual operation in the event of a complete absence of power. The background study permitted an assessment of the relative practicability of existing techniques in the light of the limiting circumstances of fallout shelter environment.
