Abstract
The study was completed in the DRES blast simulation laboratories and during the detonation of 500 tons of TNT in Event DIAL PACK. The laboratory studies consisted of a structural evaluation of a buried fiberglass shell using a portable ground loading simulator and an overpressure attenuation and natural air flow evaluation of the air ventilation system. In the ground loading simulator evaluation studies, no structural damage was recorded on the shelter shell and the air ventilation system studies indicated that the natural draft air flow and shockwave overpressure attenuation were sufficient to meet habitability requirements.
