The report describes the research in the areas of design improvement of the Kearny pump, determination of the blast vulnerability of OCD-provided shelter supplies, and applicability of large fan ventilators to shelters. Recommendations include, among others, suggestions regarding design changes in the Kearny pump to improve its fatigue life and resistance to blast waves, and development of a practical production version of the large fan ventilator to reduce the overall cost of providing ventilation to NFSS basement shelters.
