The task assignments in this project were principally concerned with the implementation of a CDC-3600 computer program for computing PFs of structures PF-COMP as well as with additions to the program which would make it more useful to architects and engineers. The program was implemented by The Research Triangle Institute RTI through the Office of Civil Defense first in the performance of the Military Overseas Shelter Survey MOSS and subsequently in the analysis of federal buildings designated by the Office of Civil Defense. Finally, implementation of the computer program as a service to qualified fallout shelter analysts was performed in the Shelter Analysis for New Designs SAND program. A principal addition to the PF-COMP computer program which will render it more useful to architects and engineers consisted of an analytical routine for cost effectiveness modification of structures to improve basement shelter PF. Incorporated as a subroutine in this supplementary program is a technique which permits definition of shelter boundary as a function only of percentage roof contribution and shelter location within a structure.
