This work is part of a larger effort to determine whether simple hardening techniques will allow protection of industrial equipment in a nuclear attack. Previous work included hardening tests of buried equipment in two DNA sponsored 5 ton HE tests and in the DICE THROW 500 ton test. In addition Boeing conducted static hardening tests and analytical studies on general hardening techniques, earth arching, thermal pulse and debris survivability. In this report a list of industries is developed which would be critical for U.S. industrial recovery. Two sample industry surveys are also included. The first is a summary of previous Boeing hardening and recovery studies on the Auburn machine shop. The second involves a small plastics industry. A proposed test plan is presented which suggests standard HE tests, impulse tests, and continued expedient shelter wall stabilization tests. Author
