In order to provide for possible protection against nuclear weapons, it is necessary to estimate the presumable effects of the explosion on its environment. For this purpose, the source terms from the burst have to be investigated. This requires a physical model of the dynamics of the exploding system during the nuclear excursion phase, but no information about weapon design and construction. Based on such a model, computer calculations have been performed for a typical example. A quantitative… Expand
Proliferation And Weapon Design - How Important?
The recent claim was that the advanced design on Swiss smuggling Tinner family PC’s is very compact, a copy of the Pakistani warheads tested in 1998, thus allowing delivery by unsophisticated, lowExpand
