Abstract : The report details the research and analyses supporting recommendations on selection among four models of the ignition potential of nuclear attacks on urban areas. Factors investigated include the accuracy of the various assumptions and analytical techniques employed by the models, the sensitivity of the models to variations in the input parameters, and the adaptability of the models to increased knowledge of fire phenomenology.
