The objective of the overall research program is to develop an evaluation procedure for determining the blast protection afforded by existing National Fallout Shelter Surveys-type structures and private residences. The purpose of the application phase of the research was to use the interim evaluation technique to predict the damage to actual National Fallout Shelter Surveys structures. Previously developed mathematical models for exterior walls were used to predict the collapse overpressure for selected structures. The report presents the results of the dynamic analysis of the exterior walls of one structure located on the Stanford University campus, and five structures located in Detriot, Michigan.
