Abstract:

New concepts for the extinguishment or control of urban mass fires from nuclear-weapon attack are proposed and evaluated. A synoptic, illustrative modus operandi is given to illustrate application of each of these conceptual countermeasures in extinguishing or controlling fires. The generation or utilization of firebreaks seems to offer the most promise. Specific recommendations are made concerning the direction of future study.
