Abstract : The response of buried horizontal MX missile shelters to simulated nuclear airblast and airblast induced ground shock loadings is investigated. Two tests were conducted on scaled reinforced concrete models to examine the effect of structural variations on shelter response and to characterize the loadings across the shelter soil interface. Pretest calculations were performed for each test. The effectiveness of the calculation techniques was evaluated through comparison of the test and predicted results.
