Description/Abstract:
THE PURPOSE OF PROJECT 39.3 WAS TO MEASURE THE THERMAL FLUX PER UNIT A REA AT A SERIES OF SPECIFIED DISTANCES FROM A NUCLEAR DETONATION. THE INSTRUMENTATION CHOSEN WAS EPPLEY THERMOPILE INDICATING ON A STRIP-CHA RT PAPER RECORDER. TWO STATIONS FAILED TO YIELD RESULTS BECAUSE OF POW ER FAILURES AND BLAST DAMAGE. RESULTS WERE OBTAINED AT 5500, 6800, AND 10,500 FT. THESE RESULTS FOLLOW THE INVERSE-SQUARE-LAW FALL-OFF, WITH IN THE LIMITS OF REASONABLE EXPERIMENTAL ERROR.
