The report summarizes currently available knowledge of soil-structure interaction as it pertains to facilities that provide protection from nuclear weapons effects. The major subdivisions of the subject are discussed in sufficient detail to convey a general understanding of the subject and to provide key references. The recommended design methodology is illustrated for the horizontally oriented buried cylinder. A parallel approach is suggested for buried structures of other configurations. It is suggested that analysis of resulting designs be accomplished by the finite element method. Illustrations of two-dimensional and three-dimensional solutions by this method are given. Author
