Abstract:

This report is based on material generated during a DCPA-sponsored conference on blast-fire interactions held May 21-24, 1978 at Asilomar, California. The conference was convened to allow a selected group of authorities on fire, air blast, structural response, and related technologies to rethink the blast-fire effects of nuclear explosions on urban areas, to identify technical deficiencies in the current state of the predictive modeling art, and to plan a feasible research program to be accomplished within a reasonable time and budget.
