Abstract:

A series of time-dependent Monte Carlo calculations has been performed to determine, as functions of nuetron source energy band, the energy deposition rates and Compton electron sources in the air due to neutron and secondary photon interactions from weapons at 1-, 50-, 100-, and 200-m heights of burst. The calculations were made with a modified version of the SAM-CE computer program. The energy deposition rates and Compton electron sources were determined as functions of time out to 100-ms local time, in 49 radial and altitude scoring bins surrounding the four isotropic point sources. Answers were obtained for penetrations from 0 to 2.4 km in the horizontal direction and from 0 to 1.5 km above the air-ground interface. The raw data have been forwarded to HDL for smoothing and curve fitting. Sample results are presented and described in this report. Author
