Description/Abstract:
A NUMBER OF CONTAMINATION EFFECTS RESULTING FROM SURFACE AND UNDERGROU ND DETONATIONS OF ATOMIC WEAPONS HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED AT OPERATION J ANGLE. IN ADDITION, EXPERIMENTS CONCERNED WITH DECONTAMINATION PROCESS ES WERE CONDUCTED. INFORMATION HAS BEEN OBTAINED WHICH WILL ASSIST IN DEVELOPMENT OF EFFICIENT PROTECTIVE MEASURES AND RECOVERY PROCEDURES F ROM CONTAMINATING ATOMIC DETONATIONS. STUDIES OF THE RADIOLOGICAL BEHA VIOR OF MATERIALS WERE CARRIED OUT, AND INCLUDED INVESTIGATIONS OF SUR FACE ROUGHNESS AND SURFACE HARDNESS. THE INFLUENCE OF INDUSTRIAL FILM ON SURFACE CONTAMINATION AND DECONTAMINATION WAS DETERMINED. THE DECON TAMINATING ABILITIES OF A NUMBER OF CHEMICAL AGENTS WERE EXAMINED. IT WAS ESTABLISHED THAT THE STRUCTURAL ORIENTATION OF A SURFACE AT THE TI ME OF A SOLID PARTICULATE CONTAMINATING EVENT, INFLUENCES THE QUANTITY AND POSSIBLY THE PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION OF DEPOSITED CONTAMINANT.
