A reproduction of the Nuclear Bomb Effect Computer, a circular slide ruler designed by The Lovelace Foundation for: Civil Effects Test Operations AEC-Biology And Medicine Contract AT(29-1)1242 Produced by: J.B. Carroll Company, Chicago 12, Ill. Based on data from "The Effects of Nuclear Weapons" Original Edition was 1957 Revised Edition 1962 / Reprinted February 1964 Edited by: Samuel Glasstone Prepared by the United States Department of Defense Published by the United States Atomic Energy Commission The app demonstrates the physical and biological effect of a nuclear detonation as a function of range. The project was pursued for historic and scientific interest. Equations: 1.Fireball radius for airbursts, contact bursts and surface bursts 2.Scaled burst altitude 3.Scaled burst distance 4.Peak overpressure at selected range for surface and optimum height burst 5.Reflected overpressure at selected range 6.Peak dynamic pressure at selected range for surface and optimum height burst. 7.Over pressure radius for selected yield. 8.Thermal injury radius 9.Blast radius 10.Ionizing radiation radius 11.Height of burst maximum for local fallout 12.Crater dimensions 13.Blast efficiency 14.Wind velocity for surface and optimum height burst.
