This report is a continuation of research into the prediction of debris depths resulting from a nuclear attack. The Five-City work consists of predicting debris depths and building damage for the city of Albuquerque. The debris depth predictions are presented in reduced scale in this report. Damage predictions for various categories of structures and for several attack conditions were furnished to The Dikewood Corporation, and are tabulated together with a correlation of URS categories with Dikewood categories. The debris charts were expanded to cover a larger number of weapon yields -- from 20 kt to 50 Mt. The debris prediction for the wood-frame building category was examined to determine whether or not the debris production is independent of weapon yield, as has been assumed. The model was programmed for use with a digital computer.
