Abstract : The study evaluated the potential usefulness of two dimensional hydrodynamic computer codes to the civil defense shelter research program, and also continued work on evolving a conceptual model of air blast-induced flows in 'blast-slanted' basement shelters. The review of the numerical simulation techniques included the theoretical aspects of the code usage as well as questions of practical usefulness. (Author)
