Abstract:

The nature of the hazards due to the prompt effects of nuclear weapon detonations are analyzed. Hazards due to thermal radiation, nuclear radiation, overpressure, translation, acceleration, and debris are considered. A classification scheme for estimating the casualties within NFSS shelters is devised. A sample NFSS shelter is classified to illustrate the application of the classification scheme. Author
