Abstract:

A proposed concept and associated design criteria for blast-resistant water wells are presented. Emphasis is on the design of deep wells for the cooling of hardened shelters. The scope of the study is limited to blast overpressures under 300 psi and weapon yields less than 20 Mt. A unique feature of the concept is the use of a gel-like material to isolate the well casing from blast-induced ground motions. Author
