Abstract:

The report summarizes analytical relationships derived for estimating the effects of x-rays on materials. The effects covered include energy deposition in single and multiple materials, front-face mass removal structural heating, blowoff impluse, stress generation by impulse loads and thermal loads, stress wave attenuation in undistended and distended materials, and structural response. Optimum energy spectra which maximize an effect for a given fluence are emphasized however, specific spectra are also treated.
