This report contains information on protective capabilities of a variety of different personnel shelters against prompt effects of nuclear weapons. This information was collected from previous studies performed for DCPA in this subject area. Protective capabilities are expressed in terms of people survivability functions which relate the probability of survival or percent survivors to the free field overpressure at the shelter site. Respective shelters are described in terms of their geometry and material properties. The following shelter categories are included. 1 Existing Engineered Buildings Upper Stories and Basements, 2 Designed Basements, 3 Single-Purpose Shelters, 4 Dual-Purpose Shelters, 5 Expedient and Special Purpose Shelters and 6 Expediently Upgraded Shelters.
