Abstract:

Simplified and detailed methods are presented for predicting exposure rates due to fallout from underground nuclear detonations. The simplified method, which is performed by hand calculations, predicts generalized exposure rate contours in the upwind-crosswind and downwind areas. The detailed method, which can be accomplished by either a hand calculational procedure or a nomogram procedure, predicts generalized exposure rate contours in the upwind-crosswind area and detailed exposure rate contours in the downwind fallout area. All procedures are based on a graphic-numerical scaling model. The quantity predicted by these procedures is the H1 hour exposure rate, in Rhr. Time dependent exposure rates, total radiation doses, and the Army-defined hazard zone boundaries may also be predicted if desired. Author
