Abstract:

The objectives of the study were to derive information on the response of building walls to blast loading from large nuclear weapons that can be used to improve estimates of building damage and casualties. To this end, simulated tests were conducted in the URS Shock Tunnel at Fort Cronkhite, California, under the sponsorship of the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency.
