The possibility of the use of MRV andor MIRV weapons in attacking a region such as a system of missile silos could result in the simultaneous or near-simultaneous detonation of two similar nuclear devices. When such detonations take place sufficiently near to each other, the two fireballs will merge and their contents will then co-mingle to form a different or unusual type of fireball and cloud. In this study, a previously developed fireball model for these conditions was reviewed and used as a basis for making alterations in the basic fallout model scaling system so that the effect of this type of detonation condition on the fallout hazard may be evaluated.
