Abstract:

This study consisted of an investigation into the options available for utilizing large, special facilities such as tunnels, government installations, and large industrial buildings for nuclear fallout shelters in CRP host areas. Technical consideration was given to the provision of lighting, ventilation, water, and sanitary systems for large groups of people. This task was accomplished by first establishing the existing availability of these services and then identifying ways of augmenting the existing services. An investigation was also made of the possibilities of suitable close-in shelter for key workers. All of the analyses were made using existing data already collected and example problems are included as an appendix.
