Experimental results obtained from loading two 112th scale basement shelter models are given for 80 and 1000 shelteree size shelters. The models were exposed to shock waves in the 5 to 20 psi overpressure range. Computer program predictions of air speeds and pressure filling are compared to the measured motion of nylon cylinders placed within the shelter models.
