Abstract:

This report presents the results of a comprehensive evaluation of mass integral scaling MIS as applied to the atmospheric radiation transport problem. MIS is an approximation used to predict the free-field radiation environments from atmospheric nuclear detonations. Codes like SMAUG and ATR use mass integral scaling of infinite homogeneous air transport data to generate environments which purport to reflect the near exponential vertical variation in density of air.
