Abstract:

The objective of Project 8.8 during the Nevada Test Site phase of Operation Hardtack was to investigate the thermal phenomena resulting from the detonation of fractional-kiloton-yield nuclear devices. Measurements were made by the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories on six bursts with yields less than 1 kt. To provide correlation with the data, additional measurements were made on four bursts with yields greater than a kiloton.
