Experiments were performed to provide necessary data for the prediction of fire damage to urban areas exposed to a nuclear burst. The investigations dealt with flame heights and burning rates of well-ventilated fires, fire spread within structures - model room experiments, fire spread from interior kindling fuels, fire spread from exterior kindling fuels, full-scale building fires and coalescence of convective columns from free burning fires. Detailed description of the employed instrumentation is given. The derived correlations as well as the actual data are included in the report.
