Abstract:

Characteristics of Urban Terrain, expands upon findings displayed in a previous study Urban Building Characteristics, Ellefsen, 1977 completed for the Naval Surface Weapons Center, Dahlgren, Virginia. Results reported here are far more detailed in every respect. For instance, exact figures are given for such building characteristics as thicknesses for exterior walls and interior partitions of varying types the previous study provided data within ranges. Data reported earlier were subjected to intensive analysis and are presented here in expanded form, both graphic and tabular. Broad, new conceptual notions concerning the environmental setting for building were explored, measured, analyzed, and presented in variety of graphic ways. Findings are presented which have potentially very high value for consideration of conducting military operations in urban areas.
