New Trends in Fallout Protection.
Office of Civil Defense (DOD), Washington, DC.
The objective of the national fallout shelter program is to provide shelter space for all Americans by--(1) locating, marking, and stocking suitable public shelter areas in existing buildings, and (2) having new structures designed and built to maximize protection. This nation's architects and engineers are now knowledgeable in radiation shielding analysis and design and in the use of new "slanting" techniques. New buildings can be designed with dual-purpose fallout protection at little or no increase in cost and without detracting from beauty or usefulness of the structure. (LD)
