Abstract:

The report describes a study undertaken to provide quantitative data from which first-order estimates of the reflective power of chemically induced clouds could be made and to provide the means of making first-order estimates related to weapons effects in general. A computer program was developed that uses data consisting of the spectral distribution of the incident energy, the composition of the scatterer, and the size distribution of the scatterer to compute volumetric scattering intensity. Incorporated within the program is a plotting option by which the data may be portrayed graphically. This program is described, as is the application of radiant energy to fire spread, history of this study, and the history of the Mie problem.
