Design of Schools to Incorporate Fallout Protection.
Folley, Milo D.
Means are suggested by which a school district may incorporate low-cost fallout protection in a school construction program, through construction of an underground shelter beneath the concrete slab foundation. Ways of controlling distribution and filtering air are discussed. The author also suggests consideration of a completely underground school, leaving only large span units such as gymnasiums and auditoriums above ground. (RH)
