Abstract : A generalized computational technique to be used in the calculation of the temperature profiles and histories in single and dual layered plates exposed to the thermal pulse of a nuclear weapon is presented. The program was written to accommodate materials whose thermophysical properties are an arbitrary function of the local temperature. In addition, quite general boundary conditions are permitted. Sample calculations are presented in order to illustrate the nature of the output format. (Author)
