Description/Abstract:
THIS STUDY UTILIZED A PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED COMPUTER MODEL, THE SHELTER EVALUATION PROGRAM (SEP) CODE, TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VA RIOUS SHELTER CONFIGURATIONS AND OCCUPANT POSTURES WITH REGARD TO RESI STING THE DIRECT EFFECTS OF A 10 MT SURFACE BURST OVER A RANGE OF INCI DENT PRESSURE LEVELS. THE SHELTER CONFIGURATIONS INCLUDE WOOD FRAM SIN GLE-STORY AND TWO-STORY, LOAD BEARING BRICK WALL THREE-STORY RESIDENTI AL, SEVEN-STORY BRICK LOAD BEARING WALL (WAREHOUSE), SIX-STORY STEEL F RAM CURTAIN WALL COMMERICAL, AND NO SHELTER OUTSIDE CASES. SHELTER OCC UPANTS WERE CONSIERED IN TWO POSTURES; STANDING AND PRONE. RESULTS IND ICATE THAT THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN CASUALTIES WHEN SHELTER OCCUPANTS ARE IN A PRONE STATE.
