Abstract : A static treatment is given of the seismic signal from nuclear explosions in overdriven cavities, with particular attention to the role of incipient tension. When the elastic limits are exceeded, the seismic signal is larger than a purely elastic treatment would imply. This enhancement, however, grows relatively slowly with overdrive under certain circumstances. (Author)
