Abstract:

A calculational aid is provided, in the form of a slide rule, to facilitate calculation of probable damage inflicted by a nuclear detonation. The particular apparatus permits calculation of any or more of several damage-causing environments induced by nuclear detonations, and the consequential probability of damage resulting from such a detonation caused by the particularly calculated environment. Appropriate scales, properly spaced in particular relationships, are provided on a slide rule, thus providing a means for performing the calculational functions described above. Each of the possible environment-related damage calculations utilizes five parameters, and the present invention provides an apparatus for determining any of the five parameters once the other four are known.
